Les Bacchantes R1
About this winery
Wine making is growing exponentially in Quebec, which now has more than 200 producers. Acquired in September 2012 by the Daoust family, the vineyard is established on the site of the former Brownlee estate. The estate, which covers 263 acres, includes a stone residence built 180 years ago and a few buildings. The choice of Hemmingford in southern Quebec to found a vineyard seems quite natural, since within a radius of a few kilometers, you will find half a dozen vineyards and cider houses....
Marquette, the grape variety used in the production of this wine, is grown on a plot of the vineyard called "Clos Johanne". This lot was named in memory of Johanne, a family friend who fought a long battle against Lou Gehrig's disease. This wine goes well with meals with family or friends. As Johanne liked to say: La vita è bella!
100% Marquette and vinified in stainless steel vats
R1 is a fruity and light red wine with hints of black pepper. Its nose is reminiscent of jammy fruits such as plum and sour cherry. The palate is supple with light tannins. Perfect pairing with cold meats, a beef or vegetarian burger.
