Manual harvest with selective sorting. Total destemming then alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 10 to 15 days. Daily punching of the cap until the devatting.
Aged in oak barrels, 15% of which are new, for 12 months. Racking and blending in stainless steel vats for 6 months on fine lees before bottling.
Very sustained ruby colour. Fine and delicate nose, offering beautiful floral aromas evolving towards undergrowth. The mouth is firm with a lot of structure. As they age, the wines develop a mellow and delicate aspect which makes all the charm of this appellation.
This wine will go well with roasted meat or meat in sauce, game and most cheeses (except strong cheeses).
