Appellation Saint Emilion Grand Cru Contrôlée

85% Merlot
10% Cabernet Sauvignon
5% Cabernet Franc

Localisation: Saint Emilion

Soil: Limestone and clay, mainly sandy-clayey with hardpan and iron dross subsoil.

Vinification: Harvested by hand the grapes are carefully selected for optimum maturity. After the grapes have been stalked they are gently crushed and fermented for a period of 3 weeks in temperature controlled stainless steel vats; the wine is then pus into oak barrels where it develops for between 12 to 18 months. During this time the wine is kept in the huge monolithic cellars cut in to the rocks beneath the village of Saint Emilion at the perfect temperature of 12°C.

Characteristics: A good keeping wine which is round and full-bodied, with delicate tannins.
