Vinification & grape variety

Grape varieties: Syrah 70%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%

Vinification: Bunches are harvested using a conveyor belt, thus preventing damage to the berries. The berries are then destemmed and double sorted. Individual fermentation of each grape variety, partly in wooden vats and partly in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats, with pre-fermentation maceration. 1-mont vatting with daily crushing to allow controlled extraction of tannins to guarantee finesse and concentration. Each grape variety is matured in barrels for 12 months and then placed back in wooden vats for 6 more months to harmonise the final blend.

Tasting

This great wine boasts a deep black colour and offers an aromatic explosion of liquorice, cinnamon, red fruits and chocolate. Subtle combination of a full-bodied wine with great finesse. Particularly harmonious, it can both be enjoyed shortly after harvest and after a long ageing process.

Tasting temperature: between 16 and 18°C.

Cellaring: 15 years

Food & Wine pairings

This wine pairs beautifully with red meat, rabbit leg with truffles, ripened cheese or a chocolate dessert
