The vineyard of Château chêne liège 2020
276.60 € TTC
The vineyard of Château chêne liège is composed of two grape varieties 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc.
The vines of 45 years on average benefit from a terroir among the best exposed to the sun of Pomerol. The grapes of this vintage are nourished here by a terroir made half of clay and the other of gravel. The whole rests on a basement of iron grime. This makes it possible to obtain after vinification, following the blending of fine, elegant and very racy wines. Her deep dress is black.

The conditions of the Millésime
Unlike some years, 2020 is shaping up to be a technical vintage to mitigate the effects of the climate. As for yields ranging from 20 to 55 hectolitres/hectare
In 2020 I noticed on my vineyard and among my three names that there will be quite different wine profiles, depending on the terroirs, cultivation methods and rootstocks, I could see in my case that the plant did not react in the same way from one plot to another.
It is a vintage in contrast, colorful and powerful, between fruity and spicy. It will be a vintage of personalities following the wine and oenological itineraries chosen by each, I think that today it is imperative to adapt and accompany climate change.
