Domain and appellation
Château de Parenchère
Neighbor to the Dordogne and Lot et Garonne French department, the Château de Parenchère is the furthest east Bordeaux region’s domain.
- Terroir: Spread across 63 hectares, the vineyard lays on a clay-limestone soil with a dominance of clay. Located on a sunny sidehill, the crops are ideally drained giving the grapes the opportunity to ripen.
- Viticulture: The vines are 25 years old in average. The one that are over 40 years old are used exclusively for the prestigious Cuvée Raphaël. The yields’ size is high with a low concentration on each plant in order to guarantee highly concentrated fruits.
- Vinification: The plot-by-plot winemaking process allows the wine to express the terroir’s diversity. A one-day cold maceration is followed by a fermentation in stainless steel tank. The Cuvée Raphaël ages for 14 to 18 months in French oak barrels.
