[ CHATEAU DE TIGNE Vins Gérard Depardieu ]

Vin de Pays "Confidence"

Grape variety : Cabernet sauvignon

Exposure : Vineyard slopes facing southeast

Age of vineyards : The vines here are over 65 years old

Farming mode : Fertilizer is not used and instead the ground is worked to have the best expression of the schist soils. Yield of 30 hectolitres per hectare. Leaf reduction in July to bathe the grapes in sun. Grapes are hand harvested into small tubs to deliver perfect bunches to the winery.

Winemaking type : Maceration in new wooden tank No pumping over but hand punching 5 times a day during 28 days.

Maturing type : Devatting by gravity in new oak barrels for 18 months.

Peculiarities : To maximise the retention of fruit aromas we do not use pumps and instead, rely on gravity to move the wines during making and maturing.

Drinking suggestions : A true expression of Cabernet, with both firmness and elegance this wine will really enjoy any meat, lamb, beef, game and even red fish, like tuna will be ideal.
