“Esprit de Parenchère” is the Château’s exceptional blend, embodying the quintessence of our terroir. Produced in confidential quantities (6,000 to 8.000 bottles), this cuvée is elaborated only in the greatest vintages so that its unparalleled quality is ensured.
It is made from the two best plots of the estate with extremely low yields (about 3,800 litres per hectare).
The blend is usually composed mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon; grape which gives the most structure and a great aptitude for ageing.
Grape varieties :
Cabernet Sauvignon in large majority
Ageing : Aged in French oak barrels exclusively for 12 months on fine lees, without racking and with micro-oxygenation. The barrels are 90% new.
Characteristics : With this highly concentrated, very elegant wine, our aim is to show PARENCHERE at its best and to equal the greatest Bordeaux wines.
Power and finesse are in symbiosis to offer a wine with a very long ageing potential.
Ideal age of consumption : In 8 to 15 years (can be kept longer by old vintages amateurs).
