The Bordeaux red wine Chateau Lapelletrie "Envolée de Lapelletrie" constitutes a Saint-Émilion with an accessible and straightforward character. Chateau Lapelletrie was bought in 1930 by Pierre Jean, grandfather of Madame Anne Biscaye, the current owner who represents the ninth generation of the family dedicated to viticulture. She tends the vineyards with a view to safeguarding the health of the environment and biodiversity. To this end, Anne follows the principles of organic and biodynamic agriculture and, in addition, has planted hedges and fruit trees around the vineyards and installed some beehives. This cuvée is made with grapes from the youngest Merlot vines, to which a smaller percentage of Cabernet Franc is added.

The Saint-Émilion "Envolée de Lapelletrie" by Chateau Lapelletrie is made from a blend of a majority of Merlot and a smaller part of Cabernet Franc, varieties that are grown according to biodynamic principles. The vines are approximately 15 years old and stand on a plateau formed by clay and limestone soils. Manual harvesting is followed by a double selection of the bunches in the cellar and then spontaneous alcoholic fermentation using only indigenous yeasts. Maceration on the skins is accompanied by gentle extraction techniques and the wine is then placed in cement vats for a few months' maturation before bottling.

Chateau Lapelletrie's Saint-Émilion 'Envolée de Lapelletrie' has a ruby red colour with garnet highlights. The nose has fresh, crisp hints of red and black fruits, combined with balsamic descriptors. It is very drinkable, taut and balanced, with a pleasant fatness supported by lively fresh-sappy verve and soft tannins that anticipate the very aromatic and persistent finish.
