In the heart of the estate Monopole, the cuvee Cabet is made from vines about 40 years old and yet its character is still that of an almost young vine – a succulent wine, explosive in the mouth, offering a broad aromatic palette of spices. Very appealing in its youth, it has great potential to evolve, a legacy from the terroir, underpinned by the age of the vines and the parcel.
Vinification and aging:
The harvest is completely destemmed before being placed in the vat. Fermentation starts naturally thanks to indigenous yeasts.
In March, after 6 months of aging and following the auction, the acquired barrels leave the Hospices cellar and settle in the cellar of Château de Charmont, next to the Premiers and Grands Crus of Maison Edouard Delaunay.
The wine finishes its aging in its original barrel or is re-intoned if we deem it necessary for its good development.After 9 months of aging in our cellars, the wines are then ready to be bottled and reach the cellars of our customers.
The estate produces 140 barrels each year, divided into 18 vintages.
