Château La Fleur Grands-Landes Montagne Saint Emilion 2016

A traditional style Bordeaux with an element of rusticity
and a robust finish.
Producer Note
The Durand family has owned the seven hectare estate in the Montagne district since
the 18th century. In 1969, M. Carrère, Mme Durand's husband took over the estate,
shaping it to its current form. Since 1997, his daughter Isabelle Carrère, oenologist from
Michel Rolland's team, has been running the estate having taught viticulture and
oenology for 10 years.
Vineyard
The vines are grown on slopes in clay soils. The vineyards are carefully managed
throughout the year, with debudding, manual removal of the vine-shoots, leaf-thinning
and green harvesting all being carefully performed. Chemical fertilisers are not used;
instead vegetal based compost is added moderately to the soil having monitored its
equilibrium. A manual harvest takes place when the grapes are slightly overripe to get
a better phenolic maturity of the skins and the pips.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted by hand after a total destemming on the sorting
table. 20% of the wine was bled off. A cold maceration took place prior to fermentation,
which lasted three to four days. The fermentation was carried out in temperature
controlled stainless steel vats, with daily pump-overs and lasted for three weeks. The
wine was then matured, with 80% aged in vats and 20% in oak barrels.
Tasting Note
A medium bodied Bordeaux, with spicy, dark fruits and herbal notes combined with
earthy hints. A beautifully balanced wine with silky tannins and a satisfying finish.
