Decomposed schist and very old igneous rock
The grapes are partly destemmed and macerated for 12 to 14 days. No fining and light filtration
Aging in cement tanks
Colour: Deep ruby in color
Nose: This wine offers a complex nose, minerally and fruity. It mingles aromas of ripe raspberry, black and morello cherries with hints of flint, ink, clove and black pepper.
Palate: The highly vibrant palate has a sound underlying structure which is powerful yet velvety, thanks to tannins which, despite mellowing, are still very perceptible. This is a stylish wine bearing the hallmarks of its terroir with a long and spicy finish.
Serve at 15° to 16°C on game, a piece of local Charolais beef or on a truffled soft cheese.
Wine for laying down, to keep 12 to 17 years.
