    The complexity of a red grand vin from Pomerol

    A red grand vin of Pomerol, the Chateau Vieux Maillet 2018 comes from a vineyard located on the plateau of the appellation.

    Situated on the right bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Vieux Maillet expands over a 8.65-hectare vineyard planted in gravelly and sandy soil with clay loam soils.

    The planting of the vineyard is dominated by Merlot (73%) with Cabernet Franc (19%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (8%).

    For this 2018 vintage, the grape harvest began on September 24 with Merlot and ended on October 2.

    The Grand Vin of the estate, the Chateau Vieux Maillet 2018 is aged in oak barrels with 40% new wood and 60% casks of one or two previous wines or amphora, for 12 to 14 months.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    A blend of 73% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Vieux Maillet rolls out of the glass with vibrant scents of crushed blueberries, warm black cherries and raspberry pie with a plum preserves undercurrent and wafts of red roses, tobacco and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, chewy texture and plenty of freshness backing up the muscular black fruits, finishing on a stewed tea note.
