Climate

  • Sustainable viticulture
  • Grassed soils
  • Merlot leaf removal
  • Fermentative maceration for 3 weeks at 26°C
  • Aged in vats for 6 months
  • Winters in Bordeaux are generally mild, with daytime temperatures averaging around 10°C (50°F). Night-time temperatures can sometimes drop below zero, but frosts are rare. This favors proper winter dormancy of the vines.
  • Spring was cool and often damp in Bordeaux. Temperatures begin to rise gradually from March onwards, favoring the budburst of the vines. Abundant rainfall in spring is essential for the initial growth of the vines.
  • Summers in Bordeaux are hot and sunny, with daytime temperatures averaging around 25-30°C (77-86°F) during the grape ripening period. However, the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean helps to moderate summer temperatures and avoid extreme heat. Hot days are often followed by cool nights, allowing the grapes to retain good acidity.
  • Autumns in Bordeaux are mild and often wet. This is harvest time, which generally begins in late September or early October for white grapes. Autumn rainfall can sometimes be abundant, which may require special attention to avoid fungal diseases.
