Montagne Saint-Émilion

Château Grand Barail

2014

Tasting

A very beautiful, deep purple colour with violet streaks showing a young and powerful wine.  Blackcurrant and blackberry notes come out on the nose at first.  Round on the palate, this wine is counterbalanced by blended tannins.  The finish is fresh with a light point of a pleasant acidity giving this wine pleasant long-lasting aromas and flavours.
To be served with cured meats, grilled meats, roasted poultry, semi-matured cheese…

Tasting

A garnet colour with some silver tints.  The nose offers an explosion of fruits like blackcurrant, blackberry, plum and black cherry.   Round and full bodied, delicate.  It is full and very silky on the palate.  Very tasty!

Beautiful long lasting aromas. A delicate wine of roundness

The wine

Manual simple Guyot pruning.  Leaf thinning when the fruits start to ripen, and green harvesting to select the best grapes.
Mechanical harvesting with rigourous manual grape sorting on a vibrating table.  Traditional vinification in thermo-regulated cement and stainless steel vats.  Cold pre fermentation maceration during 5 days for extraction of the grape aromas.  Daily fractionated pumping over.  Then long period of maceration (around 20 days).

Ageing : 12 months.
