Description

An elegant and aromatic Grand Cru Classe from Saint-Emilion

The property

The name of Chateau Balestard la Tonnelle has a dual origin. "Balestard" is the name of a canon from the history of Saint-Emilion and "la Tonnelle" refers to an old stone watchtower dating from the 15th century, still present in the heart of the vineyard. This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe is owned by the Capdemourlin family. Chateau Balestard la Tonnelle is cited in a poem by François Villon, which can be found on the label.

The vineyard

Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Balestard la Tonnelle watches over a 10.50 hectare vineyard located at the top of a hill on the clay-limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion. The vineyard is planted mainly with Merlot, complemented by Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vinification and aging

Vinification in tapered stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is aging for 15 to 18 months (50% new barrels and 50% second-fill barrels).

The blend

The Chateau Balestard la Tonnelle 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (75%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Cabernet Franc (15%).
