Sainte Magdelaine Pays D'Oc Chardonnay, , Vignobles Bonfils

Sainte Magdelaine Pays D'Oc Chardonnay

Origin: Languedoc-Roussillon, France

The vineyard took place in the old bed of the Aude, on a single and unique terroir of gravel and clayey sands dating from the Quaternary era.

Vinification

The grapes are harvested by night when the temperatures are at their coolest. All through the vinification process, the grapes and juice are protected against oxydation. The grapes macerate on the skins before pneumatic pressing. Then follows a slight cold settling. The fermentation is kept slow in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. The wine is aged on fine lees in small stainless steel tanks with regular stirring of the lees.

Winemaker's Notes

Prettily pale yellow in colour with bright reflections. The powerful nose offers aromas of acacia blossom, exotic fruits and white fruits. Supple and full-bodied, the palate reveals notes of citrus fruits, melon and white fruits with a remarkable balance between freshness and smooth richness.

Sainte Magdelaine Pays D'Oc Merlot, , Vignobles Bonfils

Sainte Magdelaine Pays D'Oc Merlot

Origin: Languedoc-Roussillon, France

The vineyard took place in the old bed of the Aude, on a single and unique terroir of gravel and clayey sands dating from the Quaternary era.

Vinification

The grapes are destemmed. After a short cold maceration (5 days at 8°), fermentation is held at 22°. Slow extraction with racking of the must and punching of the cap. After going through the pneumatic press, free run juices are blended to a selection of press juices for malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. Then the wine matures in tanks on fine lees with micro bubbling.

Winemaker's Notes

A deep purple Merlot with brilliant reflections. The nose evokes small, ripe red and black fruits such as raspberry, blackberry or blackcurrant, enhanced by a hint of spices and garrigue. The palate is round, offering a rich and silky texture thanks to well integrated tannins.
