Tasting Notes

A very impressive, overt bouquet with dark fruits and a touch of stewed plum. The palate is soft and linear with a well defined structure. Rich in creamy black fruits with an emphasis on cassis and cedar, the tannins are firm and there is a refreshing balance. The finish is long and lingering, round and stylish. What great value this is!

Food Matches

Delicious with rare roast beef with seasonal vegetables and yorkshire pudding.

Vinification

Thermo-regulated stain thermo-regulated stainless steel vats allows a partial vinification, the aging then takes place in oak barrels, half new, for 12 months.
