Chateau La Rame La Charmille Rouge 2015 France
The wine’s blend is 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 5 ha of vines planted on clayey-limestone soils have an average age of 50 years old producing a yield of 45 hl/ha. The grapes are destemmed and the fermentations in stainless steel vats will last about 2-3 weeks at 25°C – 30°C. As for the ageing process, the two grape varieties are aged separately in french oak barrels for 12-14 months with 1/3 of new oak each year.
PVins notes: Expressive nose of black berries, cassis, plums, well integrated oak aromas fill the glass with hints of licorice and mocha. The tannins are elegant and fine grained, well structured and balanced, medium-bodied, a long fresh aromatic finish. It has a cellaring potential of 5 to 10 years depending on the vintage.
