La Violette Du Manoir Cotes De Castillon
$181.77 / case(12)
All the vines grown for « la violette » of chateau manoir du gravoux are planted on a clay-limestone plateau which is an ideal location thus offering favourable vine growing conditions and producing fleshy fruity wines with great character. Among the vines of this plateau 2 hectares were planted in 1958 from which is made «la violette». Being remarkably well-exposed they produce naturally grapes with a complex and intense aromatic expression. These bunches of grapes are kept separate during the harvest before a careful vinification followed by a 12 months maturation in barrel which respects the complexity of our fruit and the fine hints of violet. Work on the soil : grassing every 2 rows ploughing every 2 rows no chemical weedkillers fertilizer : adjusted supply of organic manure at the end of the winter vine protection : measured protection ? which involves assessing and treating the vine according to the stage of the vegetative growth and the threat of diseases green works : removal of new branches + de-budding + topping and trimming + leaf removal date of the harvest : established by regular tasting of the berries parcel by parcel work on the grapes : berry-sorting table + total de-stemming (6 to 8 workers) vats : stainless steel (100 hl) vinification : parcel-based extraction by separate pumping-overs followed by a “delestage ? vatting time : 30 days fermentation temperature : 28 to 30°c press techniques : separate maturation malolactic fermentation : 100% in barrel maturation : 12 months in barrel with little racking filtration : loose filtration to respect the structure of the wine bottling preparation : low sulphiting and fining.” – terra burdigala
