Ormiale

Ormiale

Ormiale was founded in 2007 by Fabrice Domercq and Jasper Morrison. It is located in the north of the Entre-Deux-Mers region, about 15 kilometers south of St. Emilion and 8 km from Castillon la Bataille. The vineyards, Demeter certified, stretch over 2 hectares on the Côtes de Castillon and Côtes de Francs, and are grown with the classic Bordeaux vines, such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Ormiale works with very low yields, around 20-25 hectoliters / hectare considering that the maximum authorized yield for the Bordeaux Supérieur denomination is 59 hectoliters / hectare. The harvest is manual and all the bunches are de-stemmed by hand, therefore in the cellar fermentation begins only with indigenous yeasts. The aging of the wines is carried out in 225 liter, 500 and 600 liter oak barrels and in stainless steel tanks for a period of approximately 18 months. All wines are not filtered and a little sulfur is added only if necessary. All this work generates wines of extraordinary finesse.
