Château les Vergnes A.o.c. Bordeaux Blanc Sec 2008
From pruning through to picking, the key priority is to control yields (50 hl/ha). Green harvesting and leaf-stripping are carried out to help the grapes ripen. Thanks to polyphenol analysis, the grapes are brought to optimum ripeness. The wine is made using the traditional Bordeaux method: selected enzymes and yeast added during the transfer into vats, with temperature control (30° C max). The maceration time depends on the quality of the tannins that are extracted (10 to 15 days). Pneumatic pressing Matured in vats before bottling. Stored in a temperature-controlled cellar for 6 months.

Deep crimson with ruby tints. In the nose it is lively and generous with aromas of red fruit and liquorice. Structured and rounded on the palate with a long finish revealing lovely mature tannins – mild and silky. Just the wine to be laid down in a cellar for two or three years to reach its best.
