Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Principalement argiles et mélange argilo-calcaire à tendance ferrique. Vendanges manuelles, et tris rigoureux du seau, au tracteur et à la benne. Pressurage, levurage, contrôle de la température durant la semaine de fermentation, débourbage, stockage de 4 mois en cuve inox. Pas de fermentation malo-lactique. Mise en bouteille à la propriété sous filtration stérile

Winemaker's Notes

Deep ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes dried cherry, cassis, potpourri and smoked meat, with a spicy nuance adding vivacity. Rich but energetic on the palate, offering sweet dark fruit flavors and notes of candied lavender and anise. Chewy tannins add grip to a long, smoky and powerful finish.

    This CDP is ripe as can be and complex as only truly subtle wines can be.
