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.
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.
