Winemaker's Notes

An exceptional wine, very elegant and complex with distinctive minerality. Made from hand-picked grapes and left to ferment naturally for two weeks after soft pressing and stalk removal. The wine is aged in 54 Hl Allier natural French oak casks for 48 months. Bottle refined for 1-year minimum. Clean, intense aromas with nuances of very ripe fruit and balsamic notes. Well-balanced, fresh and intense in the mouth. Persistent, well developed tannins. Black berries, spices and hints of soft vanilla. Intense finish. Ideal with mature cheeses, grilled meats and game.
