The wine is dark purple in color.
The taste of the wine is soft, mature, concentrated, well balanced and structured, not devoid of depth and elegance, with fruity and spicy accents, rounded tannins, harmonious acidity and a long, persistent aftertaste with subtle nuances of vanilla and oak.
The wine seduces with a rich aroma woven of violets, dark cherries, red and black fruits, framed by hints of spices and herbs.
The wine will perfectly complement red or white meat dishes, fried or stewed meat, game, not too spicy dishes and mature cheeses.
Elegant red dry wine Vieux Chateau Brun, Pomerol AOC , made from Merlot grapes with a small proportion of Cabernet Franc, is the second from the Chateau La Ganne estate. Merlot, which is used in greater proportions, provides the fruity characteristics of the wine, while Cabernet Franc adds aromatic accents, structure and zesty spice. The grapes are grown in the vineyards of the Chateau La Ganne estate in Pomrol. Pomerol is located in the east of the Bordeaux region, near Saint-Emilion. In the south and west of the appellation, the soils are sandy compared to the heavier soils in the east, which contain a certain proportion of clay. This type of soil gives Vieux Chateau Brun an incomparable velvety wine. The vineyard and the cellar adhere to organic practices with minimal interference with the natural process. Thanks to targeted biological management, the mutual harmony of soil, climate and vines is achieved. Harvested by hand from the youngest vines of the estate, which range in age from 30 to 40 years. At the winery, the grapes are carefully selected on a sorting table. The berries are then vinified using the "saignee" ("bloodletting") method, which involves a very prolonged temperature-controlled maceration on the skins for 4 weeks with the separation of the juice, which flows out randomly. This procedure provides the wine with a rich color and a concentration of fruit flavors. At the end of fermentation, the wine is aged for 16-18 months in oak barriques, 15% of which are new, and the rest are of the second and third filling. Wine potential is 3-8 years.
