Château Timberlay - Bordeaux Supérieur

The origin of Château Timberlay goes back to the 14th century, during the 100 Years' War, when Aquitaine was under English domination.  

The château was destroyed during the French Revolution, later rebuilt, and has been completely renovated since the Second World War. 

The wine of Château Timberlay has won prizes regulary for the past century, and has an excellent international reputation.                 
This clear, bright wine is a superb ruby-red colour, with a complex nose of soft fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant and strawberry) and attractive woody and spicy overtones.           
Château Timberlay is soft and full-bodied, with good structure and acidity, as well as very elegant tannin. It is very long on the palate, with hints of vanilla and cinnamon.
