(2009 Vintage) After crushing the grapes undergo a thermal shock followed by step walk for four hours in granite mills. The mash is transferred to small capacity with temperature control vinification vats. The grapes are vinified separately. Stage in barrels (80% new and 20% second year) of 225 liter French oak.
jet black colour, no light getting through. aromas of tar, pepper and cinnamon. flavours surprisingly gentle, strawberry / raspberry notes with hint vanilla. nicely balanced, very good length but a little narrow
Deep ruby, almost purple color. Full-bodied flavors of dark plums, blackberries, earth, raisin, mocha and vanilla. Firm tannins and nice acidity. Will age well. Drink between 2013 and 2021.
