  • Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 28°C
  • Aged 8 months
  • Winters in Bordeaux are generally mild, with average temperatures around 5 to 10 degrees Celsius (41 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit). Minimum temperatures rarely fall below zero, which limits the risk of severe frost.
  • Spring in Bordeaux is cool and often rainy. Temperatures begin to rise gradually from March onwards, favoring the budburst of the vines.
  • Summers in Bordeaux are hot and sunny, with average daytime temperatures often reaching 25 to 30 degrees Celsius (77 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit). Sunny days and cool nights help maintain grape acidity, which is essential for wine quality.
  • Autumns are generally mild and moderate in Bordeaux. Temperatures begin to drop gradually from September onwards, with cool nights contributing to the slow, steady ripening of the grapes.
  • Precipitation: Bordeaux enjoys moderate annual rainfall, with precipitation spread throughout the year. Rainfall is heaviest in spring and autumn, which can influence vine growth and grape quality.
