Vinification / Vinification
Samples of the grapes are taken and tasted in order to harvest them at their optimal ripeness.
In order to keep the uniqueness of each grape variety and its soil (terroir) the vatting is done
separately. Then, there’s a first cold maceration in order to extract the fruits aromas. Afterwards,
there’s a first long traditional vatting time in thermo regulated tanks, this fermentation and
maceration last between 25 and 30 days with a temperature of 28°C. The final maceration lasts
4 days with an average temperature of 33°C in order to give a good body and make a well
structured wine. The last step is the malolactic fermentation to soften the wine. After all this
process, the wine is aged in French oak barrels during twelve months.

TASTING

Beautiful deep red colour with purple glints. Fruity nose with black cherry, raspberry
aromas and spicy notes. The palate is rich, powerful and well balanced between the fruits
and the tannins. This wine would be appreciated at the right temperature (between
16 and 18°C) with red meats, game meats, wine sauces and cheeses.
