Malolactic fermentation partly made with new oak barrels. The storage is done for 13 to 16 months depending on the vintage, exclusively on oak barrels, of which half are renewed every year.

Presentation of the vineyard
Château Clément-Pichon is one of the most sumptuous wine castle in Bordeaux located in the outskirts of the town of Bordeaux. The castle dates back to the 14th century and had its great era within the Pichon family from 1601-1880. The castle then burned down, but was rebuilt in 1881 by the Durand-Dassier family. Since 1976, Clément Fayat, owner of Châteaux Fayat in Pomerol and la Dominique in Saint Emilion, has acquired the castle with 25 hectares of land and has contributed to recreate its former glory.
A beautiful dark red color. The intense nose has a fantastic balance between red and black berries, toasted vanilla from oak barrels and spices. A long aftertaste that unifies power and balance. A red wine to pair with a creamy chicken stew.
