The Réserve Spéciale Bordeaux Rouge is made from a selection of wines from the best terroirs in Bordeaux. Tastings are carried out all over the Bordeaux region to find the most successful wines of the year with a view to creating blends in the tradition of the finest Bordeaux that favour balance over woodiness. The wines selected are mainly from the Entre-Deux-Mers. 2011 was one of the hottest, sunniest and, above all, driest years of the last few decades. These weather conditions encouraged fast, uniform, flowering, two or three weeks earlier than usual; the grapes also began to ripen earlier, during July, and then, finally, the harvests started at the beginning of September with the Merlot, followed by the Cabernet in mid-September. After two rich, concentrated vintages, the 2011 Bordeaux reds saw a return to harmony and balance: a classic vintage. Grape varieties for the Bordeaux:. 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 70% Merlot. Average annual production:. 50 000 cases.
