A terroir with limestone soil, hand-picked grapes at full maturity and dried for four to five months to reach their high concentration of sweetness. Aged in oak barrels for up to fifteen months and then bottled for two years.
Wine of a dark red color, nose of small red fruits, blackberries and cherries. In the mouth, fruity with a taste of vanilla, tobacco and spices produced by the maturation in barrels. Of a beautiful complexity and minerality, balanced and full body, with melted tannins. Long on the palate with a plum finish.
Serving temperature between 16 and 18 C. Can be paired with braised meat, pot au feu and aged cheeses.
