PRODUCTION

Aged for 18 months exclusively in brand new Allier 300 L extra fine grain oak barrels. Once assembled and bottled, the wine is bottle-aged for a minimum of four years in the cellar.

TASTING NOTES 

Deep garnet red in colour. On the nose it is complex and intense, with very ripe red and woodland fruits, blackberries, raspberries. Amazing fruit palate combined with touches of toast, cacao, caramel and nutmeg from the ageing process. In the mouth it is powerful, fruity, voluminous and silky. Tannins are round and the finish is long and persistent with flavours of chocolate and vanilla.

Decanting is strongly recommended. Serve at 18°C.
