Vinification

Selected grapes were fermented on the skins for 14 days in large 5,500-litre wooden fermenters at 24 to 28 degrees Celsius. Then aged for 20 months in small wooden barrels. Afterwards for several months in large wooden barrels to harmonise.

Tasting note

Intense ruby red, very dark aromas of blackberries, plums and cassis on the nose, with subtle notes of clove and liquorice. The palate is characterised by a full, soft body, with perfectly integrated tannin and acidity. An intense, powerful wine that is nevertheless very elegant.

Due to its dense, fleshy body, this wine harmonises with strong dishes with dark meat such as beef or game. Perfect wine for a barbecue.
