Tasting Notes

This is Montesquiou's top cuvee from very low yielding 40 year old vines. Sensitively aged in new to five year old barrels, the wine's intense, exotic fruit is nicely tethered by a characteristic, refreshing acidity.

Do not destalk. Pressing for 3 hrs by pneumatic press, settling of the juice for 3 to 10 days after harvesting. Fermentation in 225L barrels (at 16�C to 20�C) using natural, indigenous yeasts or selected yeasts if September has been rainy. Alcoholic fermentation for 4 weeks up to several months. No malolactic fermentation. Aged for 10 months in 225L barrels of 1 to 5 wines medium toast. No b�tonnage, no racking, no collage, just a light filtration on patches of cellulose before bottling. Only one bottling in September. Between 6000 and 7000 bottles produced on average
