Colour: deep red.
Nose: blackberries, blackcurrants and ripe cherries dominate with some herbal notes.
Taste: the flavor is ripe, full-bodied and concentrated, offering beautiful black berry fruit combined with a touch of black cherry and plum flavors. The finish is long and complex supported by firm tannins with oak notes.
The grapes are hand-picked at optimum ripeness. After soft corking and crushing, the two varieties are fermented separately at controlled temperature (23-28°C) in stainless steel tanks using selected yeast strains. Extraction of the paint and body is controlled by délestage and remontage. After 8-10 days of maceration, the wine is clean and transferred to malolactic fermentation. 90% is aged in stainless steel tanks and 10% in French oak barrels for 4 months. The final mixture is produced after 5 months. The process competes with minimal filtration and bottling.
