The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Lynsolence has cedar and mocha on the nose over a core of baked blackberries and fruitcake plus a waft of herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate is generously fruited, very firm and chewy with racy acid and some woodiness on the finish. Give it 3-5 years for the oak to marry and drink it over the next 10-15+

Ma meilleure note donnée à ce cru en primeur. Couleur sombre, intense et belle. Nez fruité avec une touche d'agrumes. Entrée en bouche plus délicate que jamais. Le vin monte au milieu, plus subtil aussi que dans les autres millésimes sans abandonner son fond. Juteux, puissant, fondant et parfumé, il finit long et épicé. Un raffinement jamais égalé dans tous les millésimes de cette propriété. Bravo.

Fleshy and hefty in feel, albeit with a narrow range of warm plum sauce and fruitcake flavors, ending with roasted cedar and tobacco notes that are well-embedded on the finish. Merlot. Drink now through 2021. 750 cases made, 400 cases imported.

Particulièrement dense et bien défini avec de beaux arômes de fruits noirs (mûre et myrtille) et des notes de noyau et de craie. Dense et complet. Policé.

Rond et fondant. Aucune dureté et un bon équilibre entre le fruité bien mûr et la fraicheur. Petite sécheresse en finale. Très riche et séduisant. Aromes de fruits noirs. A boire entre 2023 et 2032.

La robe est noire avec des arômes de cuir et d'épices. Le vin est souple, du charme, de la rondeur avec une tendre trame tannique sous-jacente. Joli vin.

Description

2.5 ha of exceptional land in the town of Saint Sulpice de Faleyrens in a place called "Le Bert". Very gravelly sand, very deep gravel, cool subsoil consisting of iron grime. Denis Barraud makes every effort to obtain a very high quality wine from this unique terroir.


Vineyard work

The estate does precision work in the vineyard in order to make the most of this exceptional little terroir. Merlot vines are almost 50 years old and are not very productive with a very small yield of 19 to 25 hectoliters per hectare thanks to a low planting density. The vines are grassed and drained, the work is complete, with leaf stripping and green harvest in June and August, manual removal of the inter-hearts. The amendments are organic only. Finally, the harvest is manual with rigorous sorting on the table.






Know-how and tradition

Fermentation, like most exceptional wines, takes place in thermo-regulated wooden vats. cold pre-fermentation maceration (6 ° C) for 8-10 days, load shedding and punching down, long vatting for more than 30 days. Malolactic fermentation takes place in new barrels. Aging takes place in 100% new barrels (high-end barrels whose wood comes from the Tronçais forest) for 20 months. All the elements come together to produce a complex wine with high potential.
