Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Mar/Apr 2012
Good bright red-ruby. Highly perfumed nose offers cassis, bitter chocolate, violet, tobacco and minerals. Juicy, spicy and saline, with a nicely restrained sweetness, a seamless texture and complex soil tones. Savory, fine-grained wine with smooth tannins and very good length. Excellent value.



Winemaker Notes

Harvest: By hand, in 20k plastic cartons, in order to prevent the grapes from breaking up or other damages. Harvest takes place March 15-20 every year.

Processing: Fermentation is performed in large oak foudres, with repeated remontage and pissonier, in order to achieve softer tannins and great color. Malolactic fermentation is realized partly in steel tanks and the rest in French oak barrels. The wine then returns to the oak barrels, where they age for 8 months, in order to optimize clarification and develop a more pronounced color

Bottling: Bottling takes place after a very light filtering process over natural earth , in order to filter out any impurities.
