Grape(s): 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
Localization: Bordeaux, France
Tasting Notes: This classic Bordeaux blend is well structured and silky with soft tannins and juicy acidity. Notes of blackcurrant, plum, rose petal, and chocolate.
Notes: Simple guyot pruning. The ranks are worked every two rows to promote rooting and the aeration of the soil. Stripping, thinning, and sorting of the grapes by density.
Vinification in stainless-steel temperature-controlled tanks. Alcoholic fermentation with pumping over malolactic fermentation in tank.
Food Pairing: Pair with peppery meats like Bresaola
The Domain: Domaine Comtesse de Malet Roquefort is owned and produced by the same family who makes Château La Gaffelière in Saint-Émilion. They uphold the same philosophy behind winemaking —sustainability, elegance, authenticity, and expressing the beauty that is Saint-Émilion terroir.
