Brennus Cuvée Prestige A.o.c. Bergerac Rouge 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Sauvignon grapes are macerated on the skins, while a pneumatic press extracts the juice from the Muscadelle and Semillon varieties. A preliminary clarification process is carried out by leaving the must to settle for 48 hours in cold conditions. It is then fermented in stainless-steel vats. Temperatures are controlled to keep the must below 20°C and ensure that all its flavour is preserved. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is stored on the fine lees for about 6 months. The result is a white wine of character with excellent potential to develop over time.

Earthy flinty nose. Less acidity and tropical than the New Zealand. More accessible, but less interesting and flamboyant. $16



Tasting Notes:

Very elegant scents of fruit and flowers with perfect balance. Intense, well structured and harmonious on the palate. The freshness and personality of the wine are a delight when it is drunk young, but it is only after 2 or 3 years that it is really at its best.

The Sauvignon grapes are macerated on the skins, while a pneumatic press extracts the juice from the Muscadelle and Semillon varieties. A preliminary clarification process is carried out by leaving the must to settle for 48 hours in cold conditions. It is then fermented in stainless-steel vats.
