Le Petit Courselle Les Copains
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah
Vin de France, Bordeaux, France
This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah is delicious. Beyond the rich ruby colour, there are flavours of fresh red fruits and red bell peppers. The beautiful subtle notes of fresh strawberries give a Beaujolais-esque quality. It is perfect for enjoying with homemade family classics like roast chicken, spaghetti bolognese or lasagne.
When the Courselle sisters were young and playing in the vines, they imagined they had a mischievous little brother. When they made this Vin de France, which breaks the rules using Syrah (Syrah planted where Bordelaise should be), they appropriately named the wine after their invisible yet bold little sibling.

Sylvie and Marie Courselle are sisters and
oenologists from Bordeaux. Together, they run
Château Thieuley, their family estate near La
Sauve in Entre-Deux-Mers, Bordeaux.
Château Thieuley was bought by their
grandfather in 1950, but it was their father,
Francis Courselle, who made the estate famous.
He was a renowned expert in white wines and
an oenological educator at Bordeaux
University. Despite this recognition, Francis
Courselle truly earned Chateau Thieuley's
reputation by making outstanding white wines
that rival the great white wines of Burgundy.
Marie and Sylvie Courselle were raised in
vineyards and wineries, steeped in the practice
and culture of winemaking. It is here that
they inherited their father's passion for wine
and created Le Petit Courselle.
