Light and elegant, this is a voluptuous and enticing wine to be missed neither from the connoisseurs nor from the wine lovers!

The vineyard

Molasse du Fronsadais with muddy facies, calcareous and ferruginous sub-soils give this wine roundness, power and intense aromas of red fruits

Two grape varieties:  MERLOT, CABERNET FRANC

The wine

Traditional vinification in thermo-regulated vats.  5 daily pumping over, 1 release at mid-fermentation and long maceration to maximise extraction of aromas and tannins.

One third of the vintage ages in wood. Blending is performed after a 12-18 months’ vatting period. Natural cold decanting, racking and filtration prior to bottling.
