Chateau Manoir du Gravoux 2014
Dark, purple ruby in color. With a beautiful perfumed bouquet of red fruits, delicate spicy notes bring additional charm. This wine is full and aromatic on the palate. The structure is well balanced with silky tannins with a very long and fresh finish.
The Manoir is an old medieval chateau, built during the ÒHundred YearsÕ WarÓ under reign of King Charles VII, to protect French people from the English enemies and is located on the top of a dale. Put together, the various parcels of this small valley make up the whole vineyard. The vines are classified according to their age and their degree of exposure to the sun. The combination of our rigorous work in the vineyard and ideal natural conditions (clay-limestone soils, south-exposed slopes, natural draining), enables the grapes to reach perfect maturity. The berries are picked according to each parcelÕs stage of maturation and a highly precise vinification can then be undertaken.
Our job in the winery is based on accurate extractions, in order to obtain a very fine wine, with a great fruit character and elegant tannins.
