Château Martinet, Harvest 2015

A fine eighteenth-century country house set amidst 6 hectares of gardens lined by grand old trees, and of course 17 hectares of vines, Château Martinet was long used as a hunting lodge before becoming a vineyard, and the source of one of Saint-Emilion’s most revered wines.

The grapes are harvested entirely by hand and sorted manually. They are then transferred to small, temperature-controlled vats in order to preserve the individual characteristics of each plot of vines, allowing for plot-by-plot vinification. The wines are then matured for 16-18 months in oak barrels.
