Vinification of the Margaux 3ème Cru Classé from Château d'Issan
The basis for the powerful Margaux 3ème Cru Classé from France are grapes from the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Bordeaux. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of gravel. Margaux 3ème Cru Classé is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Frenchman breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the hand harvest, the grapes quickly arrive at the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for several months in oak barriques.
