Winemaking and Maturation
French oak barrels for 15 months (60% new wood)
The purple colour, mingling aromas, candied plums, apricot and spices, then fleshy, powerful, elegant, refined flavours, leave an overwhelming sense of pleasure. The sensations slide smoothly through to the palate into a silky world of subtle, suave tannins, giving the best possible expression of this exceptional terroir.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
