Bois Grand - 2020 - Maya Sallée et Nicolas Fernandez
Domaine La Calmette

A blend of 85% Malbec and 15% Merlot, from a single 0.6-ha parcel of 32-year-old vines, farmed organically and planted on clay-limestone soils over marls and Kimmeridgian bedrock, facing west at 340 metres altitude. Harvesting is done by hand with small crates. Vinification is natural: the grapes are destemmed then moved into vats by gravity, and macerated for 15 days.
