Château Mayne-Vieil cuvée Alienor
Château Mayne-Vieil Cuvée Alienor is a selection of old Merlot vines planted on clay and gravel.
The vineyard is grassed-without leaves on one side-and green-harvested. While decreasing yields, this method provides better ventilation for the grapes.
Maceration takes place in temperature controlled concrete vats for more than 4 weeks.
Maturing lasts for twelve months in new oak wood barrels in a wine, two wines by thirds.
This wine is not spliced to preserve its flavor. Production is of 20,000 bottles yearly.
