2010 - 75 cl

AOC Fronsac

Bordeaux

Just like an ARIA in an opera, which is the most intense moment, in which the soloist expresses every emotion, the cuvée ARIA is the quintessence of the Château de La Rivière vineyard. The 2010 Vintage : Following a hot and dry spring, the summer was rather fresh. The return of the warm weather in September and October enabled the harvesting of the grapes when fully mature. Blend : 76% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec Production : 13,000 bottles Manual harvesting in crates. Sorted before and after destemming. No pressing. Vinification in conical wooden vats with gravity filling. 20% bled. Gentle (pigeages) and long (6 weeks) vinification. 18 months in new barrels (100%) Malolactic fermentation in barrles, following by ageing in lees for 6 months. Then racked twice and bottled. Yield : 28 hl / ha Tasting notes : Intense dark colour. Nice fine, fruity, spicy, fresh and creamy nose. The palate is very fruity, velvety and flavoursome. The tannins are blended, ripe and smooth. The finish is powerful and long.
