  • Terroir
    A Lussac-Saint-Émilion appellation contrôlée, unique result of an authentic tradition combined with a precursor science.
  • Vinification and maturation
    The harvest is the culmination of the work of the winemaker. The three grape varieties that make up Cap de Merle are harvested and vinified separately. The vinification, about three weeks, is adapted according to the vintage in order to develop generous and fruity wines. It is carried out with strict temperature control. The wine is stored (until bottled) in stainless steel tanks or cement for 15 to 18 months.
  • Features
    This dry and cherry-red coloured red showcases a complex nose releasing woody, fruity and vegetal scents. You will be charmed with this medium-bodied wine revealing a broad texture, fleshy tannins and a medium finish.
  • Food Pairings
    Ideal with grilled red meat, game and old cheese.
