AOC Bordeaux (Bordeaux, France)
Gravels, clay and limestone.
65% Sauvignon, 20% Sémillon, 15% Muscadelle
Le Cygne is produced with the greatest care :
-Handpicking with repeated passages through the rows, selecting only perfectly ripe grapes at each passage.
-Pressing of the whole bunches
-Fermenting and ageing in barrels of which 40% are new.
The wine is matured on fine lees with regular batonnage stirring to reveal the complexity of the ripe grapes. Bottled just before the summer, the wine conserves over the years the freshness of the Muscadelle aromas which soften the exuberance of the Sauvignon.
It is ready to drink. It can be still kept for 3-4 years.
