Each pane of the five distinctive
Brane-cantenac '90 ha' farm is divided into five compartments. Is the compartment located on the Plateau can do most good-quality wines. At best this parcel "22 meters above sea level" high are mixed with the clay up to approximately 12 meters below in the gravel, the deepest so far, while gravel. Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot being planted. Grapes used in the brane-cantenac wines from this region mainly.
Is a new plot is Chateau behind clay containing sand, repotted in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot 10 years ago. The soil where the plot called the "knot" is 15 years ago to drainage works and repotted new gravel, very good. And mixed with gravel and sand sections called "Veldt" across the villages of Margaux and with the two Cabernet sauvi Yung. And grapes grown in a plot that finally located the sutin village "Maran" primarily to the second wine.
In 1993, Henri Lurton's current owner purchased this Chateau, vineyard was first and foremost the regrading of the vines. Overall approximately 20 cm, and often so far consisted of raising the 30 cm. Also, has not been thinned shoots at Oyster point to remove the buds and do the harvest limits.Should they start one for thinning, and just came the backlash next year, bearing many clusters, and continue long It is said that.
And thinning should turn out more costly course. Thinking about both the cost and quality of the grapes, there is some risk, dare adopt this method. Also, "harvest per parcel, not the geology by going" is also notable. Brane-cantenac vineyards involves a varied geology, where during one parcel exists 4 different geology. That same plot, though, just different harvest time.
Attempt to fine wine
Without capacity, such as for emphasizing the harvest rate in brane-cantenac, Château other small gadgets, are carrying the grape in relatively large harvest basket. It seems to have never once has thicker skin when fully ripe grapes this capacity in the first. Vineyards up to pick fruit and, in this way until the brewery. Then, excluding peduncle previous election results and shredding, carried into the tank.That remains a percieved amount current excluding peduncle machine suitable to protect a grape, almost noWith that. Conversely, using capacity small gadgets, such as harvesting, small amounts at a time excluding peduncle machine when is percieved and left thing.
After the grapes into the wood and stainless steel tanks, and special equipment called "Turbo-pillar", while cold maceration. Performs the task, such as "aged" by using the "delestage" to extract the tannins mellow by "able", wine and then circulate wine alcohol fermentation in the tank unplug again, pulp cap to touch the air, and the Turbo pillar.
Using Turbo aged aged has incorporated the new system since 2000. Introduced the stainless steel tank with a special aged function to tell the truth, in 1986, before it was used in Burgundy, but could not be much better effect. It is to change the system from earlier than more pigment, tannin extraction efficiently performed.
Alcoholic fermentation after the dipped peels. For excellence in the free run wine from 1993 (the rest is tank) and malolactic fermentation in new barrels, used once comes to place wine barrels. Yielded results that can adjust the barrel types or burn barrels in the malolactic fermentation started early, only Merlot in the barrels had done so, a series of experiments, as a result, even Cabernet Sauvignon is more effective for the now also have adopted it. Barrels purchased from total 7, baking is medium. New barrel ratio is about 50-60%.
Without racking immediately close the malolactic fermentation, the two months sur lie. However do not Roussanne, microbyulage. In between the barrels of the total 18 months racking, but occasionally and do that. Use egg whites in a traditional collage.That of course is "obscure but delicious wines" is preferredSo, I want to keep this style and also.
