Château Saint-Jacques, Pomerol
80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. Traditional vinification in small stainless steel tanks. During maceration, regular pumping over in order to homogenize and oxygenate the wine for a better extraction of colour and tannins. Ageing in oak barrels, one-third of which are renewed each year. Average age of vines is 38 years. Terroir of clay & sandy soils. A fine and elegant wine. The nose is fruity and intense. Black fruits with light wood spice notes. The palate is silky with notes of ripe black fruits. A very aromatic wine, well-balanced with a long, elegant finish.
