Château Laulerie Malbec Red
Vignobles Dubard - Bergerac
100 % Malbec
The Dubard Family is for more than 30 years, the most famous producers of refreshing and reasonably priced wines in South-West France. The family members offer differing personalities of graduate oenologists, wine makers and viticulturists who together make up a dynamic and passionate team that has been renowned in the Bergerac wine region for decades. Being receptive to their terroir, combining common sense and long experience with ceaseless wine-making and viticulture: these are the founding principles on which the family has relied in their exceptionnel cuvées. They are also ongoing on the environmental label "HVE" (High Environmental Value).
The vineyard is located on calcareous clay hillsides ideally exposed to sunlight (south-southwest). Integrated farming leads to the protection of environment and the expression of “terroir” personality. It also guarantees an excellent sanitary state of the crop, and thus its final quality.
The grapes are night harvested in order to take advantage of low night temperatures. After de-stemming and crushing, the grapes are directly transferred to stainless tanks on their arrival in the cellar. The temperature is at first maintained rather low (15°C) for a few days, to maximise flavour extraction. The juice then undergoes a short (2 weeks) and rather cool (26°C) fermentation. Such a short maceration run with quite low temperatures preserve the typical aromas of the variety. As soon as the fermentation is finished, the wine is draine stainless tanks, where the malolactic fermentation and the ageing are carried out.

Food pairing

Aging potential
This is an early-drinking wine, which will be best its first 5 years. Best served at 18°C.
