Vinification Manual grape-picking. The whole grapes are gathered in vats (no crushing, no destemming). Controlled temperature: 18-28° C. Cooling after pressing. Malolactic fermentation done after the end of the alcoholic fermentation. Maturing in stainless steel tanks. Fining with egg-whites. Natural tartaric stabilizing thanks to the cold winter temperature. 25% of the crop is kept for a while
in new oak casks.

Tasting Notes Pale plus very dark garnet-purple. Very youthful nose, held back at first, with underlying crushed dark berries and flinty overtones. The taste is very clean and balanced and possesses an attractive texture. This medium-weight red has a relatively tender structure with fine acidity. A wine to consume young. - RB
