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. ~winery notes
Chateau St. SulpiceView all from Chateau St. Sulpice
The 100-acre Château Saint-Sulpice estate is situated in the eponymous village in northern Entre-Deux-Mers, just south of St. Emilion and 14 miles northeast of the city of Bordeaux. The property is planted mainly with Merlot and is very carefully tended by owner-winemaker Pierre Dubergé and his son Christophe. Their spotless cellar has been recently modernized, including a battery of stainless steel tanks.
Made with the same methods of utmost quality as those used to produce classified growth Bordeaux, Château Saint-Sulpice represents an extraordinary value and rare quality.
