The Soil

The Clos Dubreuil is situated in the commune of Saint Christophe des Bardes, on the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion.

Vinification

The grapes used for this 40-hectolitre production come from 40-year-old vines, with just 8 bunches per plant. They are harvested by hand then sorted by 10 people on a stainless steel table, before being transferred into vats for fermentation. The grapes are not crushed and the pre-fermentation stage lasts between 9 and 12 days at below 3˚C. The fermentation process then lasts for 2 weeks at a temperature of 25˚C. The 1-week maceration, at 27˚C, provides Clos Dubreuil with incredible finesse and concentration. This Saint Emilion Grand Cru is next aged in oak barrels (100% new French oak) for its second fermentation for almost 20 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes

This wine shows good color, with a smoky, floral nose, silky, soft, rich textures and fresh, ripe sweet, dark berries on the finish.
