Tasting notes

The color is a bright ruby red.
The nose opens gently with notes of red and black fruits, and a delicate touch of pepper.
The mouth is straightforward and powerful. Nice, coated tannins give the impression of even more volume on the finish.
A wine that speaks clearly of its terroir.

Food Pairing: Iberian porc

Wine Making

This cuvée is made from grapes from the following lieu-dits: Porroux, Bas de Chenevery, Ormes, Chezeaux, Bras and Cognées.

The grapes are picked by hand, sorted and vinified with 50% whole clusters. During the 17 days of fermentation, 5 to 7 treadings take place (punch downs by foot) as well some pumping over. After pressing, the wine is left to clarify for 2 weeks before being put into barrels (30% new oak barrels and 70% of 1, 2 and 3 year-old barrels). After 14 months in barrel, the wine is racked into tank where it rests for three months before bottling. The wine is neither fined nor filtered.
