The family estate was created in the late sixties by André Barraud who handed it over to his grandson Hervé in 2011. With a surface area of 7.5 hectares, the plots of land, facing south and facing Lake Geneva and the Alps, are cultivated according to the strict ecological guidelines of integrated production (IP) of Vitiswiss. The Barraud estate is located in the heart of the Vaud coast, between Lausanne and Geneva. All the grapes are vinified at the estate in the appellation d'origine contrôlée Tartegnin, a small village of the same name, on the hill overlooking Rolle. Hervé Barraud also looks after the vines of the Domaine Les Maréchales in Tartegnin, owned by the Piguet family. We had a lot of fun visiting the Barraud family, Hervé and his wife Isabelle, a great time of sharing and laughter.
Originally from the Bordeaux region, this grape variety produces a wine with a beautiful ruby color on our soils. It is well adapted to clay or clay-limestone soils. Its production is average to high and needs to be moderated by thinning out the first years. This Merlot is vinified in barrels for about 11 months. Its bouquet reveals well-characterized scents of forest fruits. On the palate, you will discover a wine with a nice tannic structure that reveals blackcurrant flavors.
