Premius Bordeaux Red
PREMIUS is the prestige cuvée from Yvon Mau, makers of fine Bordeaux wines since 1897. From selection through to the winemaking process, PREMIUS benefits from all the lavish attention of our in-house winemakers. This meticulous care has been rewarded over the last 10 years by some 50 medals in the main competitions in France and around the world.
The grapes, picked at perfect maturity, are de-stemmed and lightly crushed. The maceration, which lasts between 15 days and 3 weeks, is done by controlling the temperatures. The draining is decided when the balance of the wine is achieved: nice fruit flavours wrapped into sweet tannins. The wine is then matured in stainless steel tanks for 6 to 12 months.
30% Cabernet Sauvignon
25% Cabernet Franc
Premius Rouge has a lovely raspberry colour with purple shimmers, followed by a fine, powerful and fruity association of berry, strawberry and roasting (mocha, toasted bread). The maturity of the grape is emphasized by a lovely balance and a fresh red fruits touch. The wooded notes are perfectly melted, bringing complexity to the long finish, by grilled and toasted accents. Serving suggestions: Ideal as an aperitif and with red meat or cheese.
