Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru
Alcohol 13,0 %
This cru has a sand-gravel terroir on a clay subsoil in the town of St. Emilion. Situated next to famous Grand Cru Classés such as Ch. La Dominique, Ch. Cheval Blanc and in front of Pomerol (Ch. Gazin, L'Evangile). The chateau is the only one which is biologically certified for already 17 years and which vinifies without sulfites. They also own an optical selection machine that only allows the ‘caviar amongst the berries’ into the wine. The yields are extremely low (20.3hl/ha when 50hl/ha is allowed). The chateau respects nature (no fertilizers), rivers and the health of their staff and customers as much as possible. The wine ripens for 20 months on 50% new oak and on 50% one-year-oak. The wines are not filtered, nor cleared. They have a natural acidity that guarantees the conservation.
