Vines are planted at low density: 4000 per HA on parcels of land of clayey silt terroir, site of an ancient lake, characterized by deep soil where the Pinot Noir can develop without suffering from the high summer temperatures. It gives a rich, but fresh fruity taste of cherry, long lasting flavours, soft and smooth tannins. The grapes are harvested by hand in order to produce the highest quality possible. This limited-edition, flagship wine from is a surprising 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Pinot Noir. Complex and layered it lures you in with lush red and black fruit aromas, spice, leather, a whiff of smoke and floral top notes of violet, rose and geranium. Ageing in new French barriques for 12 months gives the palate a structured framework, but there’s really great balance here, with a velvety black fruit attack followed by a seam of freshness with red currants and red cherries, plus spicy herbal notes running onto the long finish. A wine to linger over or wait for. Fermented for 10 days in temperature controlled stainless steel, punching down and pumping over each day. Once fully fermented, the wine is left to macerate for a further 10 days before being transferred into new French oak barrels to mature for 12 months.
