Xavier Flouret Red Bordeaux Blend Premières Côtes de Blaye la Victoire 2006
PRODUCER: Chateau Haut Meneau WINEMAKER: Jacques-Henri Bravard HISTORY: Château Haut-Meneau is located in the heart of the Côtes de Blaye, the oldest producing region in Bordeaux. The Château Haut-Meneau, established in 1825, earned the “cru bourgeois” distinction in 1873. Purchased in 1988 by Jean-Paul Bravard (owner of cellars in Normandy) and subsequently taken over by his son, Jacques-Henri in 1998, the Château now holds 10 hectares. VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION: The 35 year-old vines, planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare, yield 35 Hl / hectare. The traditional fermentation takes place in small tanks. Jacques-Henri’s respect for the vintage and terroir are expressed by his working with the vintage as opposed to manipulating it. AGEING: 6 months in the tanks and 12 months in new oak barrels.
