Vinification3- to 4-week vatting in stainless steel vat, cold prefermentation maceration, alcoholic fermentation at 27-29°C with soft and flexible pump-overs and release, hot postfermentation maceration following extraction of tannins, malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats.
AgingIn oak casks (30% new) on fine lees for 12 to 14 months, without fining, minimal filtration.
TastingBrilliant, deep purple tint with black violet edges, this fine, elegant wine reveals a bouquet that combines dark berry fruits (blackcurrant, blackberry), and vanilla notes. Full-bodied and rich, along with the fruit we perceive woody and roasted flavours ending with delicate soft tannins. Cellarable, this wine is also remarkable when young. It goes well with cured hams, full-bodied red meats and game, as well as spicy dishes and strong cheeses.
