Grape Varietals: 85% Merlot plus 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
Farming: Organic, Biodynamic, Unfined/Unfiltered, Low added SO2
A more dense and mysterious wine than its companion with a deeper robe and more firm structure, we see resemblance here to the finest old wines of its neighbors to the west in the best districts of Saint Emilion and Pomerol. Barthelemy is sourced from a single vineyard site known as “Les Rocs” on a plateau with a deep limestone bedrock. The wine spends 24 months in 228L barrels (less than 10% new) with no addition of SO2 at any stage of the elevage.
