BORDEAUX SUPÉRIEUR ROUGE - VILLA MONTCABRIER
This Bordeaux Supérieur Villa Montcabrier born from a hillside vineyard facing south and east of a clay-gravel soil resting on a bed of iron slag. Merlot dominates the discussion, not even leaving a quarter of the vintage of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The grapes are harvested by hand to a traditional vinification in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and cement, with regular pumping to facilitate the extraction of aromas and tannins. Then double breeding in vats and oak barrels.
And the day sees a Bordeaux Supérieur of red fruits and licorice, with a concentrated, balanced tannins and provided with finesse mouth. Drink within 5-8 years depending on the vintage.
