Haut Vigny

Bordeaux Supérieur rouge

A.O.C.: Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge

Vineyard surface area: 100 hectares

Terroir: Clayey-limestone slopes and gravelly plateau of the Entre-deux-Mers region

Grape varieties:    70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Average vine age: 20 years

Viticulture: The grapes are grown on partner properties, where we participate in caring for the vines and overseeing the vineyards’ health all year long.

Vinification: The plots are harvested according to our instructions, following grape tastings and

ripeness tests. The harvested grapes are destemmed, crushed and vatted. We carry out a cold

pre-fermentation maceration during a few days, to favour the extraction of colour and fruitiness.

The fermentations are then carried out over several weeks at controlled temperatures.

Ageing:  8 months in American oak barrels and 6 months in tanks.

Tasting notes:

With an intense ruby red color, Haut-Vigny Bordeaux Supérieur is round with supple tannins, palate is balanced. The aromas of red fruits and slightly spicy notes make it a charming and pleasant wine to consume with roasted meats or poultry.
