APPELLATION > Bordeaux AOC
GRAPE VARIETIES > Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
SOIL > The vineyards are located on limestone soils as well as a part on gravely and sandy soils.
The climate is oceanic with high temperature variations in summer between the day and the night which is particularly suitable for the grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
VINIFICATION > Classic Bordeaux vinification: Long maceration with temperature control to extract the fruit and the tannic structure. Then ageing in oak for 6 to 8 months (French and American oak) to refine the tannins and make them silky.
TASTING NOTES > An elegant and complex Bordeaux wine showing powerful flavors of ripe cherries and plum, some black pepper spicy note .
In mouth it is a wine with a frank attack, round but powerful (tannins present but coated, silky) and a nice finish with spicy and oaky notes. Best to drink within 5 years.
FOOD & WINES > Enjoy at 16°C and best in a decanter. To be served on beef or other grilled meats.
