Chateau Cruzeau 2012, St Emilion Grand Cru 

 

 

The Chateau is impressive, built in the sixteenth century and attests to the presence of vines already planted around the Castle in 1785. It became the property of the Luquot family in 1907. Since then, the property has been managed directly by the family with the constant concern to express the authentic qualities of the soil. Today the fourth generation continues to invest in the quality of their vineyards and wine, and have devoted themselves to maintaining this work ethic.

Soil:                   Sandy alluvium at the convergence of 2 rivers on a subsoil of molasses.

Area:                  4.4 hectares

Grape varieties:   75 % Merlot, 25 % Cabernet Franc

Average age:      30 years

Harvest:             By hand

Wine making:      Traditional vinification in concrete tank under temperature control. Maceration during 20 days.
