Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Premier Gr Cru Classe A
Alcohol 14,0 %
This cru belongs to the Belgian Albert Frère and Bernard Arnault. It is Pierre Lurton (of the branch of Dominique Lurton) who vinifies the wine (as in Ch. D’Yquem). This year they vinified for the sixth time in the ultra-modern new cellar of the architect Christian de Portzamparc. 50 specially made (tronconic) concrete cuvees are responsible for a micro vinification by parcel. Concrete was chosen because it has a good thermal insulation and the tronconic shape because this gives a softer extraction to the fruits which leads to a better fermentation. Everything is vinified to the principle of gravity (the wine and berries are not pumped anymore). An enormous investment to increase the quality!
