Description

The precision and balance of a taut and round Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion

The estate
Château Les Grandes Murailles, a Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion, is located near Clos Fourtet, and also belongs to the Cuvelier family. Blessed with a great terroir on the right bank of Bordeaux, the Cuvelier family is driven by the desire to produce timeless wines of great finesse and significant ageing potential.

The vineyard
The Château Les Grandes Murailles vineyard covers an island of 1.46 hectares in the heart of Saint-Émilion. It is planted in the clay-limestone soils typical of the appellation. The vines are cultivated in accordance with natural balances and sustainable agriculture.

The vintage
After a mild autumn and a cool start to winter, temperatures began to rise in spring, leading to an early budding on March 20. The cool and wet spring was replaced with a hot and dry summer, which allowed for a homogeneous and rapid veraison. The day / night temperature differences favoured the aromatic quality of the fruit, which reach perfect maturity in tile for the harvest.

The winemaking
Harvest on September 26. Fermentation in small thermo-regulated stainless steel vats and amphora. Gentle extraction by pumping over and punching down. Fermentation for 26 days. Malolactic fermentation in vats and barrels.

The ageing
16 to 18 months, 50% in new oak barrels, 30% in barrels of one previous wine, 20% in amphora. Fining with egg white.

The blend
Merlot (100%)

The tasting
The Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé Château Les Grandes Murailles 2019 reveals a dark and deep colour. Notes of tobacco mingle with floral touches and notes of red fruits that charm the nose. The attack is round, taut and full of freshness. The palate reveals silky and straight-forward tannins. The crunchiness of the fruit comes through in the finish, giving the finish a great persistence.
