Elite – Merlot
The estate has 25 hectares with Merlot, planted at a density of 5,000 plants per hectare. The plants have a disposition from north to south, on a calcareous chernozem type soil. The cutting mode is simple Guyot. For this range, plots with an average production of 10 tons/ha are chosen.
The grapes were harvested mechanically and macerated-fermented in piston winemakers with remontage for ten days. By properly managing the fermentation temperatures and the number of remontages, as well as that of the delestagetechnique, the aim was to obtain fruity wines with less tannins. The maturation was done mainly on stainless steel tanks and partly on French oak barrels of the second and third passage, for a period between 6 and 8 months.
