Grape: Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon
Vinification: Coming from a strict plot selection (Vieilles Vignes), the harvest is
vinified in a traditional manner in thermoregulated vats with regular
pumping over to obtain an aromatic concentration and a deep robe. After
the alcoholic fermentations, the wines are held at 20 ° in order to quickly
make the malolactic fermentations. The «under wood» breeding is about
9 months to give an optimal expression of the soil.
Food Match: Ideal with grilled lamb, beef or duck. It will also be highlighted by game
birds and by hard cheeses.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS: This wine presents a beautiful purplish
red robe with a constant intensity. Its
pleasant and complex nose develops red
ripe fruits notes. On the palate, powerful
attack, ample evolution associated with
blackcurrant and spices notes, long and
persistent final. The current balance of this
wine will allow a good potential of ageing.
