Tasting Notes The color is on a rich and deep red. The nose is very complex, with undergrowth notes, red fruits and violets. The palate is dense, elegant and pleasant. This wine should refine and develop its bouquet over time.

Winemaking After sorting in the vineyard and in the winery, the grapes are directly put in tank, whole cluster. 100% this vintage. Cold pre-fermentation maceration is performed for 5 days. The spontaneous fermentation then starts. The grapes will stay in tank for roughly 3 weeks during alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then put in oak barrels by gravity (50% new oak) for 16 months. No filtration or fining is performed.
