Presentation











The Gironde

Estuary
MONDESIR-GAZIN is situated along the Gironde. The estuary regulates the climate, thereby limiting certain excessive weather conditions such as frost and hail.











The Vines

5 to 50 years old
Merlot is the chief variety, however an important proportion of the estate is also planted with Malbec, thereby reinforcing the special character of the location’s wines.





Plantation

3 hectares, each with 7,400 rootstock
The latest plantation, representing 3 hectares, comprises 7,400 rootstock per hectare. This high density is an essential element in the production of top quality grapes.




The vats

a flattened shape
The extremely flattened shape of the vats offers a large contact surface between the marc and the juice. As a result, the future wine is gently extracted. Big open vats make it possible to carry out cap pumping (a technique pushing the marc into the juice).

The barrel storehouses

Maturing
There is a cellar for the first year of ageing and one for the second year.
The estate favors a long maturation period (22 months), instead of using a lot of new oak (limited to a third of the barrels).
