Nose

Red fruit bouquet mixed with delicate notes of oak.

Palate

Harmonious, a distinguished blend of vanilla notes (brought by the oak barrels) and ripe red fruits notes. A beautiful tannic structure and controlled strength.

Growing Conditions

Very deep gravel (pebbles – gravel – sand). ➢ Very poor and filtering soil which force the roots to plunge deeply: a guarantee of quality for grapes. ➢ Vines over 40 years old

Winemaking

➢ Selective and careful grape sorting ➢ Cold pre fermentation maceration for 2-3 days ➢ Delicate tannin extraction ➢ Micro-oxygenation under marc to fix anthocyanins (colour) ➢ Preservation of fruitiness by controlled oxidations

Aging

Aging in fine grain French oak barrels ➢ The traditional aging period is 12 months in oak barrels, including 5 months on lees.

Appearance

From garnet to brick red

Food Pairing

➢ Ideal: Grilled meats, beautiful pieces of beef ➢ Harmonious: meat and dishes in sauce, duck breast ➢ Surprising: consumed fresher at 14 °C, as aperitif with homemade charcuterie
