history
Selected by JM Cazes. In the 11th and 12th centuries, the Bordeaux region was marked by the English presence. At the same time, the Benedictine monks decorated the Saint-Emilion monolithic church with sculptures influenced by the Celtic culture. This mixing of Anglo-saxon and Celtic culture has thus shaped our region. This is also reflected in the historical name of our estate: La Claymore. English-sounding, this name was written Claimh Mhor in Celtic, and referred to the broad sword of the Scottish Highlanders, Celtic warriors who are supposed to have fought with the English Army in Aquitaine.
Vineyard
Vines of Château CILORN are planted on a sandy silty plateau located on the hills on the eastern side of the Estate. All of our plots are cultivated with the respect for environment and full expression of the terroir: low level of treatment, frequent tillage, systematic leaf-thinning, green harvesting, sorting. One variety: MERLOT, typical variety from the Saint-Emilion growing region.
Winemaking
The grapes are mechanically harvested and a sorting table is used for optimal quality. The vinification, traditional, is carried out in vats with thermoregulation to optimize fermentation and maceration. After crushing, the wine ages in tank during 12 months. Bottled after 12 months’ ageing in stainless steel vats. Château CILORN is available in 75 cl Bordeaux bottles
Tasting notes
A beautiful ruby color with purple tints. The fruity nose is marked by notes of morello cherries and blackcurrant. In the mouth the attack is delicate and full of finesse with a round body ending on an acidulous note.
