Estate Sallier de La Tour


Vintage 2019

The Ex-Pereto Vineyard has a clayey soil texture (14.4% sand and 32.5% clay) so it is moist in spring and dry in summer, which gives the vineyard a medium vigour. The southwest exposure guarantees good light and warmth in summer. The soil is very rich in potassium, which favours excellent ripening of the grapes and the accumulation of sugars, aromas and anthocyanins. A medium vigour lends itself, in relation to the characteristics of the vintage, to obtaining both full-bodied red wines as well as fresh and readily drinkable rose wines.
