Prieuré La Marzelle 2007
Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
A 13 lunation year, unsettled. The month of April was hot and sunny, another sign of a good year, but the four months that followed were unfortunately cold and humid. Fortunately, early September saw a period of high pressure which saved the vintage.
The prophylactic measures implemented several years ago have proved very rewarding. Leaf stripping enables the fruit-bearing part of the vine to dry quickly after rainfall, whilst severe green harvests prevent the fruit from overcrowding and rot developing.
The 2007 vintage at La Marzelle turned out to be a great success. Intense, almost black in colour with attractive purple reflections.
