Pruning Method: Gobelet et Royat
Vinification Method: Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed before they are gently pressed. Only indigenous yeasts are used, the varietals are fermented separately in tanks before the final wine is blended. The wine is bottled using gravity and undergoes a slight filtration.
Ruby in the glass with purple highlights. The nose is packed with crushed red berry, plum, blueberry and notes of saddle leather backed by crushed stones. The palate is supple as it delivers red and black fruit flavors backed by silken minerality and a deft touch of acidity.
Serve with grilled meats, aged cheeses, hearty stews and spicy pasta dishes
