Nose: Ripe and fresh cherry, red and black currant.
Palate: Explosive fruit, supple but well-defined tannins.
Elegant and mineral finish. Beautiful acidity from end to end.
This cuvée was born from a principle of "Fermage" where the Château does not own the land but manages the vineyard, the agricultural follow-up, the work on the soil, the grasses and the vines.
Hand-picked in small open crates (25 kg), sorted by hand in the vineyard, then on a sorting table at reception. Complete de-stemming, maceration for 10-12 days, fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats with wild (indigenous) yeasts at 18°C, finishing at 24°C to preserve elegance. Maturing for 5 months in stainless steel on fine lees. Light filtration as required.
Strict specifications are followed right up to the harvest, carried out by the Château's teams under the watchful eye of its Winemaker and Oenologist Jean-Philippe Louis, who is leading the Château towards the conversion to Biodynamics and the certification of these plots.

Important: These decreasing prices are only available for orders delivered in France.
