Sustainable - Lutte Raisonnée
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
Vineyards & Viticulture
Château Respide-Médeville is situated on the summit of the first gravel hill north of Langon, with a view over the Garonne valley. The three-hectare vineyard is spread out around the château on a mosaic of terroirs in the heart of Graves. The Merlot is planted on gravel mixed with sand on a bed of clay.
Harvest & Vinification
Grapes are manually harvested and macerated, 20% whole-bunch, in stainless steel vats for 21 days with regular pump over. Malolactic fermentation takes place separately: 50% of the fermented blend is aged in new oak for 12 months, while 50% continues to age in stainless steel.
