Cuvée Grand Millésime

Château de Tiregand

RED WINE AOC PECHARMANT

Cuvée Grand Millésime

Vineyard area in production : 8 hectares on the Pécharmant slopes, right bank of the Dordogne upstream of Bergerac. Soil known as  Périgord sand and gravel , with a sub-soil of ferro-manganic clay (- 1,50 m).

Production: 38 hectolitres per hectare – amounting, after due selection of the vinifications, to 12,000 bottles. This Pécharmant is a blend of Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). It is produced from vines planted in the traditional density, to highlight the consequent great richness of the grapes.
The quality of this wine led the family shareholders to invest in closely planted vines (5,800 plants per hectare), so as to show the qualitative potential of all the Tiregand vineyards.

Cultivation: ripe and healthy grapes give the best wines. Accordingly, we always prefer them to reach maturity after short pruning, disbudding, a  green harvest (reducing the number of grape bunches), and thinning out the leaves. For more than five years, the Château de Tiregand has carried out a form of rational agriculture through which, thanks to our studies in the vines and our meteorological station, the protection of the vineyard is optimised and there is also better protection for the environment.

The grapes are harvested manually.

Vinification is carried out in open vats, with punching of the cap and scrupulous temperature control, followed by maceration of the wine  on its crust for a period of about 25 days. The wines are then transferred into barrels before the malolactic fermentation takes place.

Maturing: About 18 months in oak barrels (of which half are new and the other half have been used only once before). Stirring of the lees is implemented in the early months.

Tasting notes: Deep red in colour. Redolent of fleshy fruits. Generous and rich in the mouth. This exceptional wine is rounded off by very ripe tannins.

Keeping: Ideally, the wine should age in cellar for 6 to 8 years to reach its peak.

Sizes available: In bottles and half-bottles.

Presentation: In wooden cases of six or 12 bottles.
