Description

Chateau La Violette reveals a great Pomerol wine

The estate

At the heart of the Pomerol plateau, on the right bank of BordeauxChateau La Violette takes its name from the characteristic aromas emanating from the bouquet of its wines.

The vineyard

Chateau La Violette reigns over an exceptional 1.68 hectare vineyard on the Pomerol plateau. The vines, 50 years old on average, are planted on a terroir made up of fine gravel soils.

The vintage

A warm and rainy winter favored an early budding of the vines. At the end of March, three wind turbines were put into operation, as well as candles to tackle the onset of frost. The warm temperatures at the beginning of April significantly boosted the development of the vines. May was marked by strong sunshine and a significant rise in temperatures, leading to a rapid growth of the vines and an even flowering. The alternation of these weather conditions resulted in strong mildew pressure, fortunately limited by the good weather and the wind, which dried the vegetation during the month of May. The beginning of June was marked by a drop in temperatures, accompanied by thunderstorms. The hot and dry weather from July 13 accelerated veraison, reducing the risk of mildew but also causing water stress among the younger vines, due to the lack of rain. The scorching temperatures and drought in August caused severe water stress on plots less than ten years old. The harvest yielded grapes with good maturity, the signs of a promising vintage despite extreme weather conditions.

Vinification and aging

Following the harvest, the grapes were subject to a thorough manual destemming. 100% micro-vinification in new oak barrels. 10 days of pre-fermentation maceration. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is aging for a period of 16 months.

The blend

The Chateau La Violette is a 100% Merlot.
