Additional Information

The fruit of a plot of vines planted with 85% Merlot, 7% Cabernet franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec and 1% Carménère, Emilien is matured in oak barrels and casks for 24 months.The robe is garnet red, with hints of ruby in the younger wines and a touch of orange in the older vintages, with a diaphanous onion-skin finesse to the oldest bottles. The nose is fruity, with ripe red fruit aromas dominated by blackcurrant and redcurrant, accented with roasted almond notes and occasional hints of mushrooms and undergrowth. The palate is well-rounded, full-bodied and precise, with velvety tannins paving the way for a finish is long and enjoyably complex.
something
Le Puy lies on 54 hectares in three parcels, on the same rock plateau as Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, a place known in ancient times as “The Plateau of the Wonders” because of the excellence of its wines. Our vines are 50 years old on average with a majority of Merlot (85%). Viticulture is biodynamic and special care keeps on all along the wine-making process : neither yeasting nor chaptalisation are used. Our cuvée “Emilien” is matured and fined in seasoned casks and oak barrels for 24 months. Our sulphur-free wines Barthelemy, Rose Marie and Marie Cecile are raised by stirring without addition of sulfites and matured in seasoned barrels made of fine-grain oak. The maturing period varies from one cuvee and can take up to 24 months. They are “dynamised” regularly according to the lunar calendar and their specific needs, defined by in-house oenologists Pascal and Jean Pierre Amoreau.
