  • Château Aney | Our Wines | Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
    Cru Bourgeois status for a second time in 1978 Today Pierre runs the estate along with his son David producing wines of class and elegance While the Raimond family certainly deserves credit for lovingly bringing the property back to its full glory there is also something inherently special about this place Situated in Cussac Fort Médoc this left bank château lies strategically between St Julien and Margaux at the epicenter of the great wines of the region where the terroir imparts exceptional quality and provides ideal growing conditions The warm summer sun is tempered by the cool breezes of the Garonne and round polished gravelly river stones cover the vineyard Throughout the day the sun warms these stones which gradually redistribute the heat to the vines protecting them against springtime frosts and helping the grapes along towards full maturation in the autumn The final blend of the wine matches the proportions in which they are planted throughout the thirty hectares of vineyards 65 Cabernet Sauvignon 25 Merlot 7 Cabernet Franc and 3 Petit Verdot This traditional Haut Médoc is more like what you might remember of the classic Bordeaux styles of the 1960s and 1970s Not at all cloaked in new wood or over extracted tannins Château Aney s wines have finesse and balance that make them both approachable now and perfect for longer aging They are a great choice for any cellar Technical Information Wine Blend Vine Age Soil Type Vineyard Area Haut Médoc 65 Cabernet Sauvignon 25 Merlot 7 Cabernet Franc 3 Petit Verdot Planted in 1976 Gravel 30 ha ha hectares one hectare equals roughly two and a half acres VITICULTURE VINIFICATION Yields are approximately 50 hl ha Fermentation is temperature controlled Maceration lasts 3 weeks Wines are aged for 12 months in barrel and 20 24
