|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Sauv|
Grapes: Merlot 80% - Cabernet Sauvignon 20% Earth: coming from different land mainly clay-limestone and some parcels of muddy sand and rocky sans. Vine: Density : 5,000 plants per hectare Wine making: Depending on the climate of the year, the date of picking is different, but in any case begins as late as possible for a better maturity of the polyphenols. The entire grape is scratched. The vats are used to separate all the patches of parcel by levels of different quality all while being heated at 28°. Quite a long maturing process (3 to 4 weeks) is defined after tasting and in agreement with our oenologue Maturing: The wine rests 12 months in vats with regular withdrawals in order to eliminate the dregs and to add oxygen, a very important element for the good evolution of the wine. A monthly tasting allows to refine the final assembling. Winemaker's notes (Feb 2018)
