Product of France

风土与采收 :
Under an environmentally-friendly approach, growing techniques such as ploughing and keeping grassy areas next to the vine rows are preferred. These practices are intended to preserve fauna and flora, ensuring the land remains healthy. Under the influence of the sea, the clay-limestone soils enable us to achieve a fine acidity. We select bunches to control yields then remove leaves to make sure every bunch receives maximum sunshine.

收获 :
Grapes are picked from late August to late September, at night to avoid any oxidation or colouring.

酿造 :
The harvest is conveyed on a belt to avoid any damage to grapes, then carefully sorted and destemmed. The pneumatic presses are gravity-fed away from oxygen to protect the grapes’ full potential.
Part of the must goes through cold stabulation for 8 days. The must is settled to give a clear juice prior to alcoholic fermentation.
Temperatures are controlled at 16 - 18°C for alcoholic fermentation, which takes 10 - 14 days. The wine is then matured on lees in vats with stirring.
In December, the wine is tasted to determine the final blend then bottled in an inert atmosphere to keep its qualities intact.
The Lampe de Méduse bottle design has belonged exclusively to Château Sainte Roseline for more than 65 years.
