Chateau de Brague Bordeaux Superieur

Viti/Vini
Sustainably farmed. De-stemmed and hand sorted with vigilant selection for quality. The grapes are put into stainless steel vats where they macerate in cold temperatures for one week until they begin to ferment. The alcoholic fermentation generally takes about 8–10 days and then time is allowed for maceration, color and structure extraction. The wine is racked by gravity. The contents of the different vats are blended a month before bottling. Bottle aging is 2 years minimum prior to release.
Producer

Chateau de Brague is a 27 hectare sustainably farmed estate in Verac. The vineyard is a site that has been inhabited since prehistoric times and is situated three kilometers from the Dordogne, in the vicinity of Fronsac. Maurice Trève acquired the estate in 1936, and although he was busy as an inventor and railway equipment industrialist, he began devoting all of his free time to the development of the vineyard. The spirit of Maurice and his passion for this area remains. Three generations later, his granddaughters are keeping a close eye on the vineyards, ensuring the quality of their wine with an utmost respect for the environment. The goal of Chateau de Brague’s Bordeaux Superieur is to make a wine that is supple and elegant, while still maintaining freshness.
