"The small, 1.5-hectare vineyard of Sacre Coeur is planted to 100% Merlot, on average 35 years old. The vineyard is well situated, not far from Chateau Beauregard and Clos du Clocher. The terroir is made of gravel and sand. All vineyard management is done using 100% organic, farming techniques.
To produce the wine of Sacre Coeur, as no cellars exist, vinification takes place in cement vats at Chateau La Croix in Pomerol. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French, oak barrels. The wine is aged in 100%, new, French oak barrels for 17 to 18 months, depending on the character and quality of the vintages. For the first 6 months of its elevage, the wine is aged in its fine lees to add more richness and texture to the wine.
Bright and fresh, with sweetness to the fruits, earthy accents, soft tannins and good lift, this should be ready to drink shortly after release. The wine is produced from 100% Merlot."
