After 7 months of sur lie aging our teams carry out Château Angélus 2019 vintage first soutirage or racking.
Naturally antioxidant, the lees from the malolactic fermentation have played their protective role and are no longer needed.
During the soutirage, lees and sediments that have precipitated at the bottom of the barrel are both removed, allowing the wine to keep aging in optimal conditions.
Meanwhile, vines are shooting well and very evenly throughout the vineyard, and the future bunches promise a very good harvest. ⠀
