Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked and delivered to the winery in small batches. The fresh juice went through alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at moderate temperatures with a daily rack-and-return process. Free run juice only was used for this wine. It aged for 20 months in tight-grain French oak barrels (50% new, and 50% 1 years old barrels), and for another 12 months in the bottle at the winery’s cellars. Before bottling, the wine went through light filtration that left the liquid full of its natural flavors.

Serving Suggestions

This versatile festive wine will raise the standard of every haute cuisine meal. It will illuminate the courses it accompanies from beginning to end. If you are not the host, bring it with you as the ultimate gift for the wine aficionado.

Tasting Notes

Ripe red berries, dried tobacco leaves, and elegant French oak, are accompanied by more subtle floral notes. This meticulously balanced, full-bodied wine has a silky texture, rendering a solid and long-lasting presence on the palate. It drinks very well now and will continue to develop and expand for the next 5-6 years and beyond.
