2018 Chateau de Roques Puysseguin St Emilion

In the satellite of Puisseguin St Emilion The vineyards of the Chateau are on a plateaux which has 40 cm of fertile clay soils and limestone under soil. The South and West facing sites have deep clay and sandy soils
There are three different kinds of grapes planted, 65 % Merlot for the color and the fineness of the wine, 30 % Cabernet Franc which gives perfume and tannins and 3 % Cabernet Sauvignon for the suppleness. Vinification is carried out using mainly traditional vinification with an adaptation of new oenological practices. Once made the wine stays one year in oak barrel then it is bottled 18 months after the harvest.
