Chateau Chamirey Clos Des Ruelles
The wines has a delicate tannin's structure which is reinforced by an intense freshness. The finish is long, with some liquorice notes. After some aeration, the nose shows small red fruits and floral notes.
To preserve their integrity, grapes are carefully harvested and sorted out by hand. Before beginning the alcoholic fermentation they make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to work on the phelonic component's exctraction. Grapes are previously fully destemmed. Then full maceration lasts for 15 days during which we'll use only pigeages (punching the cap). Intensity and
numbers are lead to the concentration of tannins, perfumes and colour.
Alcoholic fermentation is realized with natural yeasts.
After maceration, free and press wines are separated for aging. Aging process is taking place 100% in traditional Burgundian 228 liters barrels during 13 months with around 30% of new barrels. Only using French oak coming mainly from Bourgogne, Allier andVosges forests.
The wine spends 3 months in tanks before bottling.
