A Bordeaux vineyard is expecting to introduce more "precision" to its wine production, thanks to its new cellar.
According to the Drinks Business, the tiny Pomerol estate of Le Pin on the Right Bank of Bordeaux has now introduced a cellar capable of storing anything between 15 and 42 hectolitres of wine.
Fiona Morrison MW, wife of Le Pin owner Jacques Thienpont, explained that the new storage facility allows the estate to divide the wine from 2.7 hectares into seven lots.
This will allow the growers to be more precise about what are the best examples from the estate.
"We feel that the best parts of the vineyard will show out, as will the less good parts. We are embarking on a journey, but we are not sure where it will finish," she told the publication.
Chinese retailer Aussino Cellar recently suggested that prices for many Bordeaux wines had got too high, and as such it plans to shift its focus to wines from Pomerol and other Right Bank appellations.
