This wine is vinified as if it were a "classified growth": complete de-stemming, eight-day fermentation in new temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and aging in vats for several months before bottling. This approach emphasizes the natural red fruit characters. The wine exhibits black cherry, spice and plum notes, with great depth and balance.
Chateau Saint Sulpice, Bordeaux Rouge, is a 100 acre estate situated in a village of the same name in the northern section of Entre-Deux-Mers, just south of St. Emilion. The vineyard is planted with 70% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, and it enjoys a microclimate with an extra measure of warmth in early autumn. The winemaking is directed by owner Pierre Duberge and his son, Christophe, who take pride in producing a soft, fruity wine with a spicy aroma typical of the Merlot dominated reds of the "right bank".
