Wine-grower’s word

 " The Château Le Cossu has been less impacted by rain than other estates during blossoming. Despite some runs, we were able to harvest Merlot grapes under good conditions. However, end of September rain make us harvest Cabernet Sauvignon a little earlier to preserve healthy grapes. It seems difficult to not be satisfied of the 2013 harvest quality. "

" Pleasant nose with dark fruits aromas (blackcurrant), than grape peel during aeration, and finally, fine spice. The mouth, forthright, has a beautiful consistency, hesitating between red berries and spice notes (pepper). Ageing reveals an elegant finish despite fine tannins. A delicately saline persistence, than smoked. To drink within 2 to 5 years, so that the ensemble as time to merges. "

Œnologist’s advice

" For this 2014 Vintage, we had to work Cabernet Sauvignon deeply. From the beginning of vinification, we could smell Sauvignon aromas and a real and typical of a Graves mouth. With Bertrand, we choose to extend post-fermentation maceration of several days in order to obtain tannins with crispness and elegancy. "
