Winemaker's Notes

L'Ecole No 41 is indisputabley best known for Merlot. Fermentation control is carried out in a traditional Bordeaux style, with small lot fermentations punched down by hand for optimal color and flavor extraction. Tannins are minimized during fermentation and in the press cycle where we do not exceed 1 bar of pressure. The wine is gently racked into a combination of new and older French and American oak barrels and aged for 18 months. With rich black cherry and berry fruit flavors in balance with the tannins, we choose not to fine this wine before filtering.
