Chateau de La Riviere 2014
Chateau de La Riviere 2014 in wood and stainless vats. Alcoholic fermentation for 4 weeks with temperature control. 15 months in new barrels (40% of the production) with malolactic fermentation and ageing on lees for 6 months. 12 months in barrels of 1 year (60%) and 2 years (30%).
Tasting Note: Full of bright red-berry flavors and spiced with the wood aging, this is a generous, fruit-driven wine. The tannins are still softening but already the wine is attractively balanced. 2020 will be the top performance year.
