Châteaularose Trintaudon Rouge '02-'03 Medoc 2005
Each plot and grape variety are independently made into wine in a temperature-regulated vathouse, offering our oenologists the opportunity to create complex blends. Rigorously controlled, alcoholic fermentation, and twice daily pumping over take place over a five-to seven-day period. When the alcoholic fermentation has come to a close, vatting follows its course for 2 to 3 weeks so as to extract the tannins from the marc. After careful tasting the wine is run off. Finally, malolactic fermentation which is left to occur in tanks immediately after running off, brings the wine-making process to an end. In early January, the wine is transferred to wood casks. In the quiet atmosphere of the ageing cellar, the barrels endow the wine with vital ingredients, while exposing it to tiny quantities of oxygen. This has an effect on the wine's colour and its tannins, producing a well-balanced, very elegant wine.
