Fruity and crisp

Its light ruby color offers a nose with spicy notes. The wine is nervous and characterized by black cherry aromas. The tannins are melting.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

Harvests can be transferred through gravity or pumping systems. The gravity transfer helps preserve the grapes’ aromas and structures.

Domain and appellation

  • Domaine de Châtenoy

    Managed by the Clément family since 15 generations, the Domaine de Châtenoy stands out through an ancestral savoir-faire.

     

    • Terroir: The 60 hectares domain lays on clay-limestone soils with sauvignon and merlot as main grape varieties.

     

    • Viticulture: With the “no good wine without good vines” motto, much care is given to the vines. They are between 30 to 50 years old in average with a planting density of 8000 plants per hectare. Harvests are hand-picked. The grapes are thoroughly sorted out and transferred in tanks through a gravity system.

     

    • Vinification: The 15 to 20 days vatting with pigeage is followed by a fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages in oak barrels.
