Description

Château Grandis is a small, relatively unheard of, estate of just 10 hectares run by Brice Vergez. Brice and his father before him François-Joseph have deliberately chosen to keep the estate small in order to tend their vineyards as much by hand as possible. It has been ‘Cru Bourgeois’ since 1932, and chose to remain affiliated in 2008 when the rules changed. To this end each row of vines is ploughed rather than using systematic herbicide and harvesting is entirely done by hand, as is pruning and a green harvest that helps to ensure full phenolic ripeness in each berry. After picking the grapes are painstakingly sorted by hand and then the grapes from each plot are vinified separately so that each plot can produce a wine that interprets each nuance of terroir. The final assemblage is then matured for between 12 and 18 months in oak depending on the vintage
