This deep, ruby colored wine offers aromas of plums, currants, licorice and hints of spice. A full-bodied wine, the oak is deftly integrated.
This 13 acre St. Emilion Grand Cru vineyards was planted on a sandy, clay plateau over a chalky-clay subsoil with traces of iron pan. The vines are an average age of 30 years old and the planting density is 6,000 vines per hectare. Average yields are around 45 hectoliters per hectare, producing approximately 30,000 bottles. After harvesting, the fruit is manually sorted with a very strict selection in the cellar. Fermentation (alcoholic and malolactic) takes place in thermo-regulated concrete vats, and the wine was aged for 15 months in a mix of 30% new oak, with the remainder in barrels that are one and two years old.
