Saint Emilion - Saint Emilion Gr Cru
Alcohol 13,0 %
This chateau used to be called Rol de Fombrauge until 2006. Then it got the name Ch. Louis, which was an excellent idea. Many people buy this wine because their son or grandson is called Louis (just like my son). This wine is of such a high quality that you can easily keep it for 15 years! The terroir of 8ha in St. Christophe de Bardes (St. Emilion) is situated on the slope and on the plateau, perfectly situated. The composition of this soil is the perfect clay-lime combination and the vines have a beautiful average age of 60 years! Besides, the density of the plantings was raised to 8300 vines per hectare, the vinification material was entirely renewed and more new oak is used (60%). Stéphane Derenoncourt is the adviser. The production is very limited: 7200 bottles for the first wine and 2400 bottles for the second wine. Be quick!
