One of the smallest appellations in Bordeaux, Pomerol is also one of the most prestigious. .All the grapes are destemmed and carefully sorted. Fermentation takes place naturally, and the wine stays on the skins for three to four weeks. Temperatures are kept at 27-29° C. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and is fined with egg white. This wine has a beautiful, brilliant, ruby-red colour with brick-red highlights. The attractive bouquet features forest floor and musky aromas. The elegant tannin provides good texture and balance. This wine is pleasantly fruity with balsamic and candied fruit flavours and a delicious long aftertaste.
