Château Perron is a family company that has been making wine since 1642. The beautiful chateau is located in the municipality of Libourne in the Lalande Pomerol appellation and belongs to the top in this region. The chateau is very innovative and its wines are now produced with the highest organic certification (Certified High Environmental Value III level, or Environment Management System)
The Perron La Fleur is the top model of Chateau Perron. It is a 100% Merlot. The average age of the vines is 65 years. The manual harvest takes place with 1st selection in the vineyard and then on a vibrating table in the Château. There is also a so-called Mistral table which is equipped with a blower with which all irrelevant things after the double selection is blown away (think of leaves, loose stalk, insects, etc). The alcoholic fermentation takes place in cement vessels fitted with temperature control and lasts on average no less than (fermentation and lactic acid fermentation) for 45 days. The wine can then mature in new French oak barrels. The wine only gets a very light filtration (tangential flow filtration) and after that the wine stays in the bottle for at least 8-12 months in the cellar of the Chateau.
This beautiful Lalande Pomerol is aromatic, concentrated and elegant. In the nose beautiful notes of blackberry, strawberry and red currants associated with fine black currants, caramelized woody discreet oak. In the mouth the wine is velvety and silky, fruity, well balanced with a nice mineral and a fine juiciness and creaminess with a beautiful aftertaste. Advice is certain to aerate the wine in its younger years. The wine can also safely age 15+ years.
This is a wine for gourmets and an excellent companion of risotto with truffles, mushrooms, game, gratins, ham, grilled vegetables, white meat, poultry, red meat, hard cheese. Open the wine at least 1-2 hours in advance so that it can breathe and reach full maturity.
