Il peut se déguster jeune, mais demande surtout à se conserver entre 5 et 15 ans, et plus, suivant les millésimes. Comme tout vin d’appellation, il est possible de trouver un peu de dépôt. A ouvrir une heure ou deux avant le repas et si possible à décanter dans une carafe à une température de 18°.
The Domaine Champs de Lalande is an exploitation from father to son since 1975, situated in the center of the naming on several plots of land of 1 HA surface. A sunny climate, rather moderate, as well as a clayey or argilo-rocky basement contribute to make a great wine of naming.
It is constituted by 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet franc and 5% of Cabernet Sauvignon. Vines are ploughed, work and grape harvests are manually made with transport of the harvest in 70 liter tub, manual sorting and table of sorts out vibrating. The production ages for 18 months in tank among which 25% are crossed in oak barrels for every racking. The bottling is made in the domain.
This wine asks to grow up in cellar ventilated by a hygrometric degree of 75 % and especially a stable temperature about 11°. He can be tasted young, but asks especially to preserve between 5 to 15 years, and more, according to the vintage. As any wine of naming, it’s possible to find a little deposit. Open one hour or two before the meal and if possible settle it to decanter in a temperature of 18°.
