Each characteristic of 5 parcels
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 region boasts a height of '22 m above sea level"while mixing with clay up to approximately 12 m down in the gravel, the deepest so far are gravel. Cabernet-Sauvignon and Merlot is planted. Grapes used in the brane-cantenac wines is from this parcel in the primary.
It is a new compartment just repotted 10 years ago, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Chateau behind clay containing sand in. Soil and repotted new pane called "knots" and drainage construction 15 years ago where gravel, very good. Have, mixed with gravel and sand compartments called "Veldt" across the villages of Margaux and with the two Cabernet sauvi Yung. And grapes grown in a compartment that is in the end the sutin village "Maran" is primarily used in the second wine.
In 1993, Henri Lurton's current owner purchased this Chateau, vineyard was first and foremost was it raising 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.Don't keep much for thins out, and just getting the backlash next year, bearing many clusters, one starts with It is said that.
And weeding required in large turnout of course it will be costly. Thinking about both the cost and quality of the grapes, there is some risk, dare adopt this method. Also, "harvest per parcel, not the doing Geology by" is also notable. Brane-cantenac vineyards involves a varied geology, where during one parcel exists 4 different geological. That, though the same compartment, just different harvest seasons.
A trial for the great wine
Without the use of a smaller capacity such as order focuses on the harvest rate in the brane-cantenac, Château other gadgets, are carrying the grape in relatively large harvest basket. It seems to not be struck down, so has thicker skin when fully ripe grapes on this capacity. In vineyards up to pick fruit and carries up to brewery in this way. Carried into the tank and then excluding peduncle previous election results and shredding.Remain percieved defended current excluding peduncle machine is an appropriate amount, if you put a grape, that almost noWith that. Conversely, using capacity small gadgets, such as harvesting, small amounts at a time excluding peduncle machine when is percieved and residual thing.
After the grapes into the wood and stainless-steel tanks and special equipment called "Turbo-pillar", while low temperature maceration. Perform tasks, such as using the "delestage" to extract the tannins mellow by then circulating wine alcohol fermentation in the 'able', wine from the tanks once, pulp cap to touch the air, and the Turbo pillar 'aged'.
Using Turbo aged aged incorporated a new system from 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 extract effectively performed.
Alcoholic fermentation after the Peel soaked in. For excellence in free-run wine from 1993 (the rest is tank) and malolactic fermentation in new barrels, used once comes to place wine barrels. Obtained by repeated the experiment started barrel in malolactic fermentation early is only the Merlot in the barrel had done so, but as a result, adjust the barrel types or burn even Cabernet Sauvignon is more effective that, in the current here also used that is. Barrels purchased from total 7, baking is medium. New barrel ratio is about 50-60%.
Malolactic fermentation is finished, quickly without racking the the 2 months sur lie. However does not Roussanne, microbyulage. And in between the barrels the total 18 months racking, but irregular and do that. Use egg whites in a traditional collage.Of course love the "obscure but delicious wines"So I think and I want keep this style.
