Description

La Fleur Morange owns some of the oldest vines in the Right Bank.

Many of their Merlot vines are over 100 years old! They have some Cabernet Franc that is over 70 years of age. Those old vines, which offer only a small amount of grapes, provide very concentrated fruit, give this wine a unique character.

It is the goal of the estate to try and pick the fruit when it’s fully ripe. Yields are often low at La Fleur Morange. For example, in 2009, they were only 25 hectoliters per hectare.

To produce the wine of Chateau La Fleur Morange, After a 6-day cold soak at 3 degrees Celsius, the wine must is fermented in unique, 50 hectoliter, truncated, stainless steel, conical-shaped tanks with dual insulated walls.
