Description

If Réserve de Jeanne is distinct for its balance, Réserve de Georges is built on its volume. Located on sloping stony hills, these grapes in this vintage come from a small harvest. Vinified with natural yeasts and no added sulphites, this powerful wine is also smooth, supple and tender. After harvest grapes are sorted and fully crushed, followed by a pre-fermentation cold maceration for 5 days at 6 degrees Celsius. No sulphite vinification and indigenous yeast fermentation at 28 degrees Celsius in 300 hl stainless steel tanks with daily pump-overs and punch downs for 35 days. Malolactic fermentation follows and then wine is maturated for 12 months in 225 l oak barrels and 6 months in cement vats. Aromas of tobacco, spices, red fruits and mocha. Supple on the palate with fresh and elegant tannins with toasted and vanilla notes and a lingering finish.
