Red fruit bouquet mixed with delicate notes of oak.
Harmonious, a distinguished blend of vanilla notes
(brought by the oak barrels) and ripe red fruits notes. A beautiful tannic structure and controlled strength.
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
➢ 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 in fine grain French oak barrels
➢ The traditional aging period is 12 months in oak barrels, including 5 months on lees.
From garnet to brick red
➢ 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
