The Vineyard: Bernard Fournier, a winemaker in Belves-de-Castillon, has been making organic wine since 1970! He is one of the pioneers of organic farming in the Gironde.
The domain’s 18 hectares are ideally situated on slopes facing south and south-east.
The soil: Composed of Clay-limestone and silty-clay.
After a manual harvest and a complete destemming, the grapes macerate for 3 weeks before being drawn off. The wine is then fermented in concrete vats for around 8 months before being barrelled in French oak for a short time.
Appearance: Deep red
Bouquet: The dominant grape, Merlot, reveals good fruit, with a concentration of aromas.
Taste: A balanced, well-rounded and pleasant wine. The elegance of a
refined vinification reveals notes of red fruit.
Serving temperature: Serve at 17°C, this wine will benefit from being aerated in a carafe.
Serving suggestions: Can be enjoyed with red meats in sauce.
When to drink: Ready to drink now or can be kept for 3 years.
