The method of vine training is of high quality: pruning in cordon de royat, careful trellising of the vines, mechanical cultivation. The grapes are harvested at the end of long maturation periods, on the stump.
Alcoholic fermentation between 20° and 24°C, soft extractions and maceration between 12 and 20 days.
Long and respectful maturation under the meticulous eye of our oenologists.
Ruby red color. In the nose aromas of garrigue, roasted hazelnut and some subtle touches of mocha. Smooth on the palate, on a coulis of ripe red fruits (raspberry, blackcurrant). Some notes of black zan, roasted hazelnuts and pepper. A well present structure in mouth underlines a very ripe matter. Long finish.
Serve chilled (8-10°C). It will be a perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to marinated chicken brochettes.
