In 1974, two hectares of vines were planted on this gravelly soil on a clay base corresponding to the high alluvial deposits of the Vienne River.
This parcel is located on the left bank, just in front of the church of Sazilly.
Made from the Clos de la Cure vines and a small plot of Clos de la Chapelle – which prevented us from keeping the name “Clos de la Cure” – this cuvée reveals a more assertive character with wines with firmer tannins and a very present nervousness.
Cold skin maceration for 5 days. Vatting lasts more than 15 days at temperatures of 24° to 26°C. Free run wines are blended with the press wines if they are qualitative, as soon as the alcoholic fermentation is over. A dense, tannic and lively wine is then obtained.
The malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels of 3 to 4 wines and 12 months of ageing in barrels will be necessary to refine the tannins and reveal the very subtle aromas of red fruits of this vintage of good ageing.
