  • Appellation: Haut-Médoc

Taking up a tradition established at many Bordeaux estates, Jean Gautreau and his cellar master decided with this wine to "hot-temper" and new barrel a reduced percentage of the best of the crop. The 2014 offers a spicy nose varying on graphite and cedar, in the manner of Pauillac. The palate is mellow and the tannin is uncommonly refined. A great Bordeaux wine!

Viticulture

Taking up and systematizing a well-established tradition in many Bordeaux estates, which consists of separating the batches in the vat room according to their origin in the vineyard, Jean Gautreau and his cellar master decided to go one step further in 1995, and to heat-ferment a certain percentage of the harvest in new barrels, representing sixty barrels in total.

Oenology

At the end of the maturation, after tasting, a batch of 18 barrels was selected and continued its maturation for 6 months. This batch was blended as is and bottled. These bottles were set aside and the Cuvée was named "Jean Gautreau". Every year since 1995, the operation has been repeated. After a long period of hesitation, Jean Gautreau decided to finally sell this confidential wine.
