Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc L DE LAGARDE
AOC Bordeaux Rosé

Appellation : AOC Bordeaux Rosé

Varietals : 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc.

Vineyard : Situated in Saint Laurent du Bois

Production Area: A mild climate (due to the Atlantic Ocean). Lots of sunshine, and regular rain, the hillside situation and the clay-limestone soil, gravels offer the best conditions for the growth of the vines and the grapes.

Hectares of production: 38 hectares.

Yield per vine & hectares:  The average is 47 hectolitres per hectares, although it varies depending on the climatic conditions of every year.

Training system: The vineyard is held up by Guyot double (Bordeaux style) to obtain the best maturity and also to avoid phytosanitary disease.

From the vine to the shade of our cellar: Our cultivation is called “raisonnée”: more heads of vine per hectare allow us a “green harvest”, the choice of the best grapes. The grape-harvest takes place at the end of September and the chronological steps of the harvest has always been the following:
- Red grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, then Cabernet Sauvignon.
- White grapes: Sauvignon, Muscadelle then Semillon.

Fermentation: 20% of the juice is bled off to be vinified quickly to keep the freshness of the fruity flavour. Vinified in stainless steel tanks that are thermo regulated.

Temperature: 18° to 20°C

Malolactif Fermentation: No

Analytical Data: 12.5 % vol. / alc.

Tasting Notes: “Creme brulee, honeycomb, thyme stems, and strawberry sorbet aromas follow through on a supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with delicate citrus and mossy earth notes. Finishes with a crisp, dusty tannin fade. A nice choice for pork roasts. ”
