Viticulture

From the existence of its vines since the Gallo-Roman era, to its name taken from the hospital for lepers or "gaffet" in medieval times, to the impressive genealogy of its owners, the Malet Roquefort family, established in Saint-Emilion 4 centuries ago, stands out as the oldest in the region. The 22-hectare, single-hold vineyard stretches between the Ausone and Pavie hills, facing south and benefiting from sunshine for the 35-year-old vines.

Oenology

The slopes are clay-limestone and the foot of the hill more siliceous. Hand-harvested, sorted and totally de-stemmed. Cold maceration for a few days, followed by fermentation. The vats are pumped over and pigmented. Vatting continues in temperature-controlled vats until the wine is ready to run off. Malolactic fermentation begins in vats and ends in new, one-wine barrels for 16 to 18 months.
