Terroir: Clay-silt with clay-limestone substrate on the rocky plateau of St-Emilion
Average age of vines: 50 years old
Vinification: Produced from the fruit of Semillon vines planted on a special hillside, where the November fog creeps up slowly in the early hours to enshroud the grapes and nurture the noble rot which transforms the grapes. The grapes of Sémillon which ultimately produce the Marie-Elisa are harvested in several stages to ensure optimal maturity. They are then pressed gently, with the juices left to ferment for 2 to 3 years in traditional barrels. The wine is bottled without filtering, and with no added sulphites.
