Chateau Vieux Champ 2007, Grand Cru St Emilion
The vineyards are in the jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion, landscape World Heritage Site by Unesco. The berries are then more concentrated nutrient dyes, tannic and aromatic. Hand picking in cases, careful sorting of grapes and berries, de-stemming. Maceration, cold fermentation under temperature control, and long maceration-you almost can feel it. And we also feel that the mild extraction yet great finesse and great concentration made possible through earnest expression of terroir made in the maximum elegance the wine maker can. This wine is best serving at 16°C to18°C. Grapes are Merlot 60%, Cabernet Franc 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15%. Taste is dry blackcurrant and blueberries. Elegant, with good acidities, long finish. Smoky.
