6 months in oak barrels.
Aged in oak barrels. A superb premium wine from Cheval Quancard made from grapes selected from each plot and vinified for 6 months in oak barrels (with two thirds being replaced each year). The first bottles come on the market in May, depending on the harvest. Emphasis is given to the Sauvignon Blanc (which account for the majority), Sémillon (20%) and Muscadelle (10%).
