Sommelier's Notes

Bright red color with purple reflections. Fresh scent, complex with intense fruit reminiscent of the scents of red berry fruit such as cherry, currants, blackberry and raspberry. The spicy notes lead back to liquorice, cloves, cinnamon, pepper and dark chocolate with a vanilla finish. The taste is warm and enveloping with elegant tannins.



General Aging: Maceration lasts for more than 30 days. The wine, after a first decanting, refines for 12 months in new barrique. After two years in the cellar, it is then bottled and refines for another year in a bottle before being ready for sale.


Culinary Recommendation: To serve at 18C. Good match with indicated to accompany dishes of red meat braised or cooked and game.


Alcoholic content: 14% by Volume
