Product Description:

"The vineyards of Saint Romain occupy south/south-east and north/northeast slopes. The area of the vineyard is 1.08 hectares. The average age of the vines is 40 years. The grapes, harvested by hand, are transported quickly and smoothly in small 20 kg boxes to the winery in order to avoid crushing berries, oxidation phenomena and uncontrolled pre-fermentation macerations. The grapes are sorted in order to finish a fine selection of grapes at maturity. The grapes are destemmed and pressed by fractionation and at low pressure using a pneumatic press. The musts are then cooled to 12 ┬░ C and then decanted after 24 hours. The wort begins its alcoholic fermentation in a stainless steel vat under controlled low temperature and is then rapidly entrenched in oak barrels whose origin (forest of Tron├žais and Allier) and age (25% new wood) are adapted to the needs of the vintage. Elevage is 10 months on the lees without racking." -Importer
