Description

An elegant and aromatic Grand Cru Classé from Saint-Émilion

The property

The name of Château Balestard la Tonnelle has a dual origin. "Balestard" is the name of a canon from the history of Saint-Émilion and "la Tonnelle" refers to an old stone watchtower dating from the 15th century, still present in the heart of the vineyard. This Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé is owned by the Capdemourlin family. Château Balestard la Tonnelle is cited in a poem by François Villon, which can be found on the label.

The vineyard

Located on the right bank of Bordeaux, Château Balestard la Tonnelle watches over a 10.50 hectare vineyard located at the top of a hill on the clay-limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion. The vineyard is planted mainly with Merlot, complemented by Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vinification and ageing

Vinification in tapered stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is ageing for 15 to 18 months (50% new barrels and 50% second-fill barrels).

The blend

The Château Balestard la Tonnelle 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (75%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) and Cabernet Franc (15%).
