About Chateau Tire Pé Tire Vin Vite

Chateau Tire Pé Tire Vin Vite is crunchy and honest! Made “as close to the grape as it gets,” this is a light, joyful red for any occasion and pocket, to be drunk chilled and in its youth.

The organic grapes are spontaneously fermented for 10 – 12 days, then rested for 6 to 10 months in concrete tanks. Unfined, unsulfured.

About Chateau Tire Pé

David and Hélène Barrault took over this small vineyard in ’97. Blessed with rich clay and limestone soils, this vineyard possesses fantastic southern exposures and overlooks the Gironde River. The chateau takes its name from a colorful local tale about what small animals “leave behind” before climbing the Tire Pé hill. The Barrault’s farm has ten to fifteen-year-old vines organically, and great care is taken to gently extract the supple fruit and terroir that Bordeaux is so well known for into each cuvee they produce.

About Merlot

Merlot is a red wine grape variety with strong historical ties to Bordeaux and the southwest of France. It is associated equally with easy-drinking red wines and the great labels of Saint-Emilion and Pomerol. The variety is the second most-planted red variety in the world, after Cabernet Sauvignon.

The precise flavors that Merlot imparts to a wine are not easily defined. Plum and black cherry are among the most common fruit-based descriptors used, though Merlot is often used for producing wines of a particular texture rather than a particular taste.

Smooth, rounded, and “easy drinking” are common descriptions of Merlot wines. The main reason is that Merlot grapes are relatively large in relation to their pips and the thickness of the skins in which tannins are found. For this reason, the variety is often used to soften wines made from more tannic varieties.
