The vineyards are located between the Uchaux hills and the Plan de Dieu appellation.
The grapes come from selected plots in which they are able to reach full maturity verging on over-ripeness. Extraction is thorough due to numerous devatting and pumping over interventions performed throughout the fermentation process. Final maceration under heat lasting 30 days is reinforced by punch-downs. Tannin extraction is monitored daily in order to obtain a wine with accomplished structure without any aggressiveness.
This wine tosses class at every turn beginning with its lively mix of fragrant bramble, ginger spice, dark kirsch and flowers on the bouquet.
The palate has real elegance, plus a light kirsch and balsamic note, and excellent length. Lovely stuff
