AOP Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion


Château des Laurets2014, 750 ml

The vineyard of Château des Laurets is spread on 90 hectares on two neighbouring appellations: Montagne Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion. Within this area, the 40 hectares located on Puisseguin are dedicated to the production of Château des Laurets. This excellent clay and limestone soil gives the Saint-Emilion Merlot its distinctive taste. Particular attention is given to vineyard management in order to achieve low yield and get quality grapes at optimum ripeness. The grapes are handpicked (the machine is used as reinforcements when a faster response is required). The entire harvest is hand selected and destemmed before entering the vat. The wooden vats, stainless steel and concrete tanks are fully temperature controlled. After about one month of maceration in tank, the wine is then carefully aged in French oak barrels during 16 months. Baron Benjamin de Rothschild has acquired this superb property in 2003, aiming at developing the estate’s great potential. A large renovation work of the cellar was undertaken in spring 2004 to offer modern and efficient facilities.
