Château Leydet-Valentin - Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Saint-Émilion Merlot Blend
In the winery, fermentation happens naturally in tank. The wines are aged on the lees in oak barrels with no racking, a strict minimum of sulfur and no fining or filtration. The hands off approach in the cellar gives wines that feel like an ultra-traditonal Bordeaux. The wines have a nice amount of fruit and earthiness, backed by structure, and tannins that are present but do not overpower.
