Work in the vineyard is meticulous and conscientious, with adapted cultural techniques. Frequent yield controls allow the best grape quality. Harvest is hand-made, and we do practice parcel selection.
Maceration lasts 18 months in french oak barrels, with 40% of new wood. An ongoing test of maceration in amphoras is very promising.
This wine is the perfect expression of its terroir. The cabernets sauvignons and merlots enhance the blendings, and the right balance between silky tannins, the fruit power, and acidity allow an ageing potential up to 20 years and more for the best vintages.
BOUQUET DE Monbrison
The Bouquet is the second wine of the estate. Like the Grand vin, it is a blend, but it is made with the youngest vines (max 20 years). Harvest is hand-made at optimum maturity, and the wines are matured 12 months in french oak barrels of 2nd and 3rd wines.
The Bouquet is a keen wine with red fruit aromas and soft and candied tannins, allied to a nice freshness that offer an ageing potential up to 10 years.
