GRAVES of BORDEAUX - Vintage : 2016 (13% vol.)
Grape variety : Blend of Merlot (75%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (25%)
Winemaker Franck LABEYRIE - Château LUGEY
This wine is stored in the oyster trays in the Arcachon basin (FRANCE). The wine thus benefits from the optimal conditions for its evolution: - A constant temperature between 8 and 12 metres deep
- A very high hydrometry rate (very wet under there!)
- A filtered light, filtered by sea water
Compare with this vintage kept in the cellar:
- Feeling that it was older, perhaps a vintage or two - Slightly more tiled colour
- More rounded finish
The wine remains fruity, but with strong notes of coffee and roasted almonds and a subtle iodine touch resulting from its passage at sea Very pleasant red wine to taste
Esthetics of this unique bottle with the visible traces of its long passage at sea.
Do you want to surprise your friends with an unusual bottle? This is the wine you need!
