RED WINE  |  750ML  |  FRANCE  |  2016 |  14%



Vinification

 Vat-filling using gravity flow and whole uncrushed berries. Plot by plot vinification in small capacity concrete vats. Gentle extraction via a mix of punching down of cap and pump-overs. Protective macerations aiming for more flesh and salinity.

Vineyard

61 hectares (151 acres) of old vines from massal selections - Merlot and Cabernet of over 50 years old.

Harvest

Manual harvesting on a plot-by-plot basis according to terroir and ripeness. The Merlot was picked on 13 and 14 October, and from 17 to 22 October. The Cabernets on 22 October

Ageing

Reductive ageing on fine lees partially in barriques and partially in large French and Austrian oak casks (50% of new wood). 1st racking after 4 to 6 months ageing (before the summer); the 2nd one year later, before the bottling. Bottled from 2 to 6 July 2018.

Tasting Notes

 Plateau made up of chestnut-coloured and red clays over asteria limestone with east-facing terraces and west-facing slopes of very chalky, fine blueish clays.


Brand: LAROQUE | Grape Variety: 95% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc and 0.5% Cabernet Sauvignon
