Winemaking

21 days of cold prefermentary. Wine is oak aged : 1/3 in new oak and 2/3 in old oak.

Tasting

Intense red ruby with purple reflection. It’s a young wine ready to drink but with a good potential for ageing. Complex nose with herbal notes, cedar, spicies and little red fruit (blackcurrant). Once swirling, these notes are increased and wine lets appear oak and vanilla aromas. Nose is equilibrate and express the terroir and grape quality. Palate is complex as well, aromas are similar to the nose and full of red fruit with spicies notes. Assertive tannins emphasized by elegant oaky notes. Long finish.
