Nose

With a richly layered bouquet that marries jammy fruit – blackcurrant and blackberry –with the toasty, vanilla notes of the barrel.

Palate

The dense, warming palate is refined throughout, with an elegant tannic structure resulting from its distinguished terroir, as well as from a perfectly controlled winemaking process.

Growing Conditions

Very poor soil. Mixture of gravel and medium sized pebbles with some sand.

Bottling

Bottled at the property

Winemaking

Fermentation is in temperature controlled vats and the wine is macerated for 20 to 30 days. Ageing in barrel (20% new each year) lasts for 6 to 12 months, depending on the vintage. During this time, it is racked every 3 to 4 months and fined with egg white before being bottled.

Aging

Ready for drinking from 2019; a great match for a fine cut of grilled meat or a well-garnished cheese board, but whatever the case over any informal meal.

Appearance

The result of a legendary year, this wine is the expression of its exceptional terroir – elegant and charming! Deeply coloured, still deep purple at rim.
