Soeurette Vintage 2020 cuvée without sulfur
Vin rouge de St-Emilion, without added sulphites – Grape variety Merlot
100% Merlot from vines planted on sandy-gravel soil, vinified without added sulphite, Sœurette is a delicate wine, graceful, fine, deep while suppleness and lightness. A real sweetness.
It was in the early 1990s that we began to imagine practices of «bio-regulation» of our ecosystem. In strict respect of the soil, we have developed a method allowing us to control certain diseases or pests of the vine.
Thus, we have been able to regulate a significant number of pathogens inherent in the vine without the addition of products, whether they are synthetic or natural, and with the help of natural management of arthropods such as spiders or insects.
With this in mind, we wanted to apply in July 2012 the «organic regulation» in our cellar and therefore to our wine. With the collaboration of microbiologist Christophe Gerland, our teams were able to develop a wine without added sulphites that results from the understanding of the work of our native yeasts and bacteria by their observations and quantifications in our wine.
Our wine Soeurette sulphur free is therefore derived from the «organic regulation» of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations.
