Winery Tasting Notes
Lovely deep red colour.
Aromas of red fruits (blackcurrants, strawberries) together with a light fresh vegetal note (green peppers, very characteristic of Cabernet) and spicy scents (cinnamon, mint, honey). Subtle woody notes on the finish (cedar, oak, walnuts).
This is an elegant, complex wine that is long and velvety on the palate. The tannins are well-balanced. There are no herbaceous aromas.
This wine is ready to drink now, but can also be laid down for 3 years or more.
A perfect match for traditional food such as shepherd's pie, gratins, stews, grilled meats, rib of beef, steak au poivre or loin of lamb.
The grapes are totally destemmed. Long temperature-controlled maceration is carried out to obtain a long, rich and powerful wine. The wine is pumped over numerous times to extract the colour and aromas from the grape solids. Malolactic fermentation is always carried out.
Following this, the wine is aged in vats for about 6 months until it reaches its final balance. 5 to 10% of the wine is aged in oak barrels to provide greater complexity.
