Légende R Médoc CNY
Médoc Appellation stretches on the left bank of the Gironde Estuary, North of Bordeaux.
Médoc benefits from an exceptional situation and a unique terroir. The gravelly hilltops characteristics of the region produce great wines with great aging potential. Wines coming from clay and limestone terroir are fine and elegant and can be appreciated in their youth.
This wine is made in the traditional Bordeaux method : grapes are destemmed and crushed before being placed in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Total maceration time lasts around 3 weeks, with regular pumping overs, to obtain good concentration of tannins and colour. The wine is then ready for the ageing under oak (around 50% of the final blend).
