About Ormiale Wines

Bordeaux, France

Founded in 2007 by owner Fabrice Domercq and Jasper Morrison, Ormiale is situated in the north of the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux. Ormiale is vinified and bottled on the property as an appellation Bordeaux contrôlée – Grand Vin de Bordeaux. While the Merlotinox an 100% Merlot, is a stunning Vin de France wine.
Everything is done by hand, even de-stemming the grapes! These delicately handled grapes are vinified in French oak vats and also in stainless steel vats for about 4 to 5 weeks. Yields are typically, around 20-25 hectolitres/hectare. In comparison, the maximum authorised yield for Bordeaux Supérieur in 2009 was 59 hl./ha!
