  • Vinification and maturation
    The grapes first underwent a pre-fermentative low-temperature maceration at between 8°C and 10°C for five days to draw out the maximum color and aromas from the skins. Then the must was fermented in stainless steel tanks.
    Next came a post-fermentative maceration to increase the concentration and structure of the wine.
    100% of this wine was aged for 18 months in ultra-fine grain French oak barrels, 33% of them new. The wine was then bottle-aged for 8 months.

    This wine can be stored for up to 10 years.
  • Features
    Elegant with a good volume, this wine boasts round, very well-achieved ripe tannins, giving it an enveloping body with a long, clean finish that lingers in the mouth. This wine harvest was characterised by a good typicity, structure and concentration. Good color and volume in the mouth, with the fruity intensity.
  • Food Pairings
    Pairs particularly well with very ripe cheeses such as Emmental or Brie, and grilled meats.
