Clos Des Menuts Saint Emilion Grand Cru

The Clos Des Menuts Saint Emilion is a blend 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Cabernet Franc. The grapes have been carefully harvested by hand. The grapes are then gently crushed and fermented for a period of no less than 3 weeks in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was then allowed to mature on French oak (50% new and 50% 2nd year) for 18 months. During this time the wine is kept in the huge monolithic cellars in the rocks below the village of Saint Emilion and all at the perfect temperature of 12 ° C.

The Clos Des Menuts can be stored for a long time. It is a wine that is round and full, with delicate tannins. A very deeply colored red wine. A strong nose, very complex with notes of vanilla and toasted bread. Full in the mouth. The wine has a nice structure and a good balance between the fruit of ripe grapes and the vanilla oak tannins. The Clos Des Menuts Saint Emillion Grand Cru with an excellent price-quality ratio and a great vintage as the Bordeaux connoisseur knows. 92/100 James Suckling

Winery Clos Des Menuts

The Rivière family, present in Saint-Émilion since 1875, operate a 25-hectare vineyard. In the 1950s, Clos des Menuts only had one hectare. Today it extends over 25 hectares near the ramparts of Saint-Émilion, mostly to the west of the municipality.

Harvesting is done entirely by hand. A sorting table makes the selection of the best grapes possible. The fermentation takes place in a traditional way at 28/32 ° C with a setting of approximately 21 days. During the first few days, two to three immersions of the must are done every day to extract the best tannins.

The wine is then aged for 18 months in oak barrels, eroded in the huge medieval cellars from the rock below the heart of the village of Saint Emilion. More than 9 meters below ground level, the Clos des Menuts benefits from exceptional aging, at the ideal and constant temperature of 12 ° C. The monolithic cellars of the Clos des Menut, dotted with old grain silos from the Middle Ages, are a highly appreciated attraction for the numerous visitors to the medieval city.
