Average vine age: 25 years

Viticulture: Traditional Bordeaux-style vine training, with two canes and a flat arch. Controlled grassing-down of the vine rows or mechanical working of the soil, to improve the soils’ vitality and biodiversity. Manual “green harvesting”, for a homogeneous distribution and proper aeration of the grape bunches. Mechanical grape harvesting.

Tasting notes:

The wine is dark ruby with garnet highlights. The nose is marked by notes of spices and black fruit, notably blackcurrant, with a beautiful evolutionary note. The palate is well-balanced and long, with a mineral finish that gives this wine its distinctive complexity.
