Tasting notes

The color is a very bright ruby red.
The nose is powerful with intense notes of red and black fruits (strawberries and blueberries).
The attack is sharp and dense with well-structured tannins.
A rich and elegant wine that does not deny its origins.

Food Pairing : Beef tartare and oysters

Wine Making

The grapes are picked by hand, sorted and vinified with 80% 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 (40% new oak barrels and 60% 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 or filtered.
