A selection of our estate’s best plots.
Alluvium (clay, sand and gravel) originating from the river Lirou creating rich and humid soil and colluvium (from eroded calcareous rock) creating quality soil, deep and well drained.
Harvested early in the morning at the coolest time of day, around 5am. Direct pressing after a short period of maceration. the grape must is chilled (at around 8°c) for 36 hours to allow for settling.
After selection of the clarified juices, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel vats under controlled temperatures (30%) and in new french oak barrels (70%) with batonnage (gentle stirring).
the new french oak barrels come exclusively from the Bernard cooperage, a family run business settled in the heart of the charentes region of france since 1936. the ageing in the barrels lasts 5 months and brings complex aromas and lovely strength.
Beautifully golden robe with a bounty of colors.
A strong nose – roasted, spicy (coriander seeds, curry).
the oak is elegantly present. Lovely aromas of quince jelly, dried apricots, pepper and spices. A generous and ample wine.
Between 10 and 15 caudalies for the nish.
