The grapes were carefully destemmed and fermented in thermo-regulated wooden tanks. Fermentation started off at cool temperatures and lasted between eight to 10 days, during which the wine was oxygenated by daily pumping over and rack and returns. The temperature was increased during vinification finishing at 28°C. 70% of the wine was matured in French oak barrels, from different cooperages, for a period of 12 months. Part malolactic fermentation took place in the barrels.

Winery

Chateau Preuillac is located in the heart of the Medoc. The vineyard covers 30 hectares on a single site. The soils vary with 50% of the vineyard being clay, limestone and gravel soils; 25% gravel soils and 25% sandy-gravel. The average age of the vines is 40 years. The vineyard is managed according to the principles of sustainable viticulture. The soils are cultivated in order to limit the use of herbicides; and sprayings are only used when absolutely necessary. Much of the work in the vineyard is done by hand, such as green harvesting and debudding in order to optimise the quality of the harvest.
