Technical Data Sheets
of Loudenne Le Château red :

Production

Grapes are hand harvested into small crates, sorted on arrival and transferred without pumping into tanks.

The vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks or thermoregulated cement vats, each varietal and parcel are vinified separately.

Pressing is carried out using a small vertical Bucher press to separate and select the press wines retaining only the best.

Ageing takes 12 to 18 months entirely in Bordeaux French oak barrels, of which minimum one third new oak.

Nose, eye, palate

A youthful Loudenne le Château red has a beautiful purple colour, a powerful nose, complex, with hints of black fruits (cherries, blackberries, blackcurrents), toasted bread and a light hint of vanilla. Some vintages also demonstrate elegant fresh notes of mint. The palate is dense, concentrated fruit, with an alluring thread of tannin, full bodied and long in the mouth. The wine has very good ageing potential but the tannins are sufficiently well integrated that it can also be appreciated in its youth. With ageing the fruit aromas gradually fade to be replaced by rounded woody notes. The wine becomes more complex and the tannins more silky

Tasting

Serve between 18-20°C. Decant the younger vintages half an hour before serving. The older vintages should be decanted just before serving as they may have some sediment, natural byproduct of the ageing process.

Guard time

A cellar wine that you can enjoy young but you will also appreciate the aromatic notes that develop with ageing. A wine you can age up to 20 years given the appropriate conditions.
