The Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé 2019 is a dense garnet red wine that exudes freshness and complexity. Its intense bouquet offers a harmonious blend of blackberry aromas and hints of liquorice. On the palate, the wine showcases its terroir with a refreshing tension characteristic of limestone soils. It is a lively and full-bodied wine with powerful yet refined tannins. The finish is long, highlighting the abundance of fruit flavors. The vineyard spans approximately twenty hectares, situated on a clay-limestone hillside and molasse de Fronsadais soils, contributing to the wine's unique character as a Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Emilion in the Bordeaux region. The winery practices parcel management and traditional cultivation methods, including the use of natural cover crops and a focus on environmental balance. The harvested grapes are stored in a cold room. The grapes undergo gravity reception with double sorting and vibrating tables to ensure quality. The maceration process takes place at low temperatures in small thermoregulated concrete and wooden tanks. Malolactic fermentation occurs in both tanks and barrels. The aging process involves the use of 80% new barrels and 20% barrels that have previously held one vintage. ABV 13%
