Château Fleur Morange

Domain: Château Fleur Morange

Spread across the slopes of a hill overlooking the Dordogne valley, Saint Emilion is a small medieval town that has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Its vineyards have an excellent reputation, and are spread over nine communes with a very wide range of terroirs. The limestone plateau and clay-limestone slopes produce richly coloured, full-bodied, well-structured wines. Towards Pomerol, the gravel soil produces more refined wines. Traditional Bordeaux grape varieties are grown here, with a predominance of Merlot. Only the best wines are entitled to the Grand Cru appellation, most of which are located on the edge of the limestone plateau and the clay-limestone slopes.

The vineyard that produces la Fleur Morange is planted in sandy-clay soil on an iron-rich limestone subsoil. Like other garage wines, it is vinified using very modern techniques. Furthermore, the yields from the almost 100-year-old vines are strictly controlled, through rigorous pruning and leaf removal. The wine is matured in new oak barrels for 18 months before being bottled without fining or filtration.
