Chateau Saint Sulpice Red Bordeaux 2016
Chateau Saint Sulpice is a 100-acre estate situated in a village of the same name in the northern section of Entre-Deux-Mers, just south of St. Emilion and 14 miles northeast of Bordeaux. The property is planted mainly with Merlot and is very carefully tended by owner-winemaker Pierre Duberge and his son Christophe. Their cellar is spotless and recently modernized to include a battery of stainless steel tanks.
The wine is given a classical vinification for a Bordeaux red: complete destemming, fermentation in new temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for 8 days, and aging in vats for several months before bottling. This approach maximizes the natural fruit qualities.
