This wine offers a complex nose, minerally and fruity. It mingles aromas of ripe raspberry, black and morello cherries with hints of flint, ink, clove and black pepper.
The highly vibrant palate has a sound underlying structure which is powerful yet velvety, thanks to tannins which, despite mellowing, are still very perceptible. This is a stylish wine bearing the hallmarks of its terroir with a long and spicy finish.
Sommelier's advice: Serve at 15° to 16°C on game, a piece of local Charolais beef or on a truffled soft cheese. Wine for laying down, to keep 12 to 17 years.
Decomposed schist and very old igneous rock
The grapes are partly destemmed and macerated for 12 to 14 days. No fining and light filtration
