Built in 1298 as a military fortress for the Dukes of Burgundy, the castle has undergone major transformations over the centuries. The particularly remarkable 75-metre-long winery and cellars, built in 1728, are still in full use today. Château de Dracy’s wines have been distributed by Albert Bichot since 1905, a classic example of a long-term partnership! The vineyards are located in Couches, just south of the Côte de Beaune, in the northern part of Burgundy’s Saône-et-Loire department.
Fruity nose with notes of forest undergrowth and a hint of toast. Soft and delectable, this is a well-balanced wine with good substance and well-integrated tannins. Lovely fruit and liquorice on the finish.
