    Description

    “CELLAR INFORMATION After the sorting out, the grapes are destemmed and poured in stainless steel vats equipped with a temperature controlled system.
    The extraction of the grape skin is “”light”” in order to keep as fruit as possible. Fermentation is followed by a long maceration (about 2 weeks) before running off. This decision is made by tastings. After pressing, all the wine goes into the oak wood barrels for 12 months. VINEYARD INFORMATION The wine « Sequoia de Mauvesin Barton » comes from 22 acres of vines in the appellation « Haut Médoc » of Mauvesin Barton property. The soil is a majority of clay and limestone. The vines are conducted with sustainable agriculture method and the grapes are picked by hand on these plots.”

    Daniel Grigg

    Vivid ruby color. The nose is nicely fruity with a delicate hint of vanilla. Red fruits such as current and strawberry. Silky and delicate tannins. [Daniel Grigg, 01/03/2023]
