Wine making: Vinification is of traditional Burgundian type, in open vats with twice-daily punching of cap. Maturation takes place partly in 228 litre oak Burgundy casks, to mellow the aromas, partly in vats to preserve fruitiness.
Our Tasting notes: Deep and bright garnet-red colour. On the nose, lovely fruitiness, with aromas of strawberries, blackcurrant, and some sweet spices. On the palate it is well-balanced with good mineral notes. It has fine tannins and good liveliness. Very nice!
Serving suggestions: It would be ideal with red meats, poultry in wine sauces and tasty cheeses. Serve at 16°C (so pop into the fridge for 30 minutes in summer to take the edge off any warmth)
Cellaring potential: Enjoy now or keep for 3 to 5 years.
Single bottles, multiple bottles or complete boxes (12 bottles) may be ordered.
