Purcari wines had gained an enviable reputation in Europe by the end of the 19th century. This wine has been cask fermented in French oak barrels with lees contact to add complexity and weight. The palate has an enticing array of exotic fruit flavors entwined with toast and vanilla notes from the oak. Long and delicate honeyed notes well integrated with a lovely citrus freshness.
The famous quote for the Alb de Purcari? “Boarding Pass: From Chablis to Sonoma First Class” try it and you will see why the world Sommelier judges pick this time and time again.
No other winery in Germany, Austria, Hungary and all of Central Europe won more prestigious 2015 Decanter Worldwide Medals than Chateau Purcari from Moldova. In 1878, our small vineyard in Purcari Moldova entered the Paris World Exhibition for wine. During a closed door session, the jury preferred the dry, densely-colored red wine we so devotedly perfected. This was the start of a miraculous life for our wines, and was considered the “Triumph of Negru de Purcari”.
Today, our wines continue to make everlasting impressions. Many of our wines are blended with the Rara Neagra grape like this outstanding Negru de Purcari, which is only grown on 80 hectares in the world. We owe our success to hand harvesting our grapes, the strict cannons of Moldovan wine making, and our magnificent soil at Purcari. Experience how Decanter and other prestigious competitions select Chateau Purcari in one blind wine tasting after another. We have long shared our passion with Moldova and the Royals of Europe, and we hope to open America’s eyes to Moldova’s greatest kept secret.
