Cold pre-fermentation maceration for 72 hours, to delicately extract colour and fruitiness. Fermentation and maceration in stainless-steel, temperature-controlled tanks during 15 days on average for controlled extraction. The wine is then aged half in French oak barrels, half in stainless-steel tanks.
Pierre de Marsan is a descendant of the Viscounts of Marsan, founders of the town of Mont-de-Marsan in the Landes, Bordeaux. He married in 1630 a rich heiress whose dowry was an important property in Lestiac. Wine production on this field began in the XVII th century. The Gonfrier family bought this property in 1962 and extended the vineyard over the years. The Château de Marsan is the reference property of the company.
