The actual Chateau Picard is a real family owned vineyard located in Bordeaux in the region of Saint-Estephe. The 2017 Chateau Picard Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux is from an estate in the heart of the world-renowned Saint-Estèphe region in France. Wines from the Saint-Estèphe region tend to be bold, rich wines that age extremely well. The Star Trek Wines version of Chateau Picard is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot blend that is subtly smoky and spicy with a bright, fresh, clean-tasting style. The wine spends 14 months in oak, 70% seasoned and 30% new.
