CHATEAU LES CONSEILLANS
Chateau les Conseillans 2016
Cadillac Côtes de Bordeaux
Hand picking, gentle de-stemming, and thorough sorting are the primary practices.
Every different grape varietal is fermented separately in small cement tanks. The extraction of the cap is a mix of pumping over and “pigeages” technique. The wine is given long ageing in French oak barrels, and a great deal of attention is given to the blending to obtain the most representative wine of the “terroir” and vintage.
