Château Les Hautes Tuileries 2013, Lalande de Pomerol

Tasting Note

Château Les Hautes Tuileries is a silky, supple wine with copious red fruit aromas and a balanced fruity finish. Vinified without oak it has soft, berry and spicy plum flavours reminiscent of nearby Pomerol.

Producer Note

Château les Hautes Tuileries is the second wine of Château Les Hauts Conseillants. The property was established in 1973 by Paul Figeac and Pierre Bourotte. It is now run by Jean-Baptiste Bourotte, CEO at Audy. The estate is 10 hectares in total split between 5 hectares in the heart of the Lalande de Pomerol and 5 hectares on the Chevrol plateau. Their vines are all over 35 years old with some over 50 years old. Like the wines from neighbouring Pomerol the wines give pride of place to Merlot and show a natural elegance with silky tannins.

Vineyard

Double and simple Guyot trained vines with 6,000 - 8,000 vines per hectare. Manual leaf thinning. Harvest is done by hand. Ecofriendly agriculture with no use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

Winemaking

Sorting, de-stemming and soft pressing before fermentation and maceration in thermo regulated stainless steel vats parcel by parcel. Maceration lasts about 4-5 weeks with manual pumping over. After maceration and racking a selection of the vats is blended with the collaboration of Jean Philippe Fort from the team of Michel Rolland.

Serving Suggestion

Drink at 16°-18°C with grilled meats, game or cheese.

Grape

Merlot 70%, Cabernet Franc 20%, Cabernet Sauvignon 10%
