Flavour

The spicy fruit of the grapes compete with the boisé of the barrique, in a crescendo extending on the palate with extremely pleasant effects. The impressive but elegant flavour leads to a long and memorable aftertaste.

Vinification The 3 varieties are fermented separately in 150 hl wide and short stainless steel tanks, in order to have an extended surface of skins-must contact, leading to an optimum extraction of the polyphenolic richness. About 20 days of maceration at a controlled temperature below 30° C. Daily punching down and 2 "délestages" on the 3rd and 5th day of fermentation.
Ageing 18 months in new 225 liter oak barrels from Allier and Tronçais. After the first 12 months of separate ageing, the wines are assembled and the finished blend goes back to the barrels for a further 6 months. After bottling the wine ages in bottle for more than a year before release.
