Terroir

A selection of the best plots from our estate : terraced vines at an altitude of 300m on the southern slopes of the Pic Saint-Loup, unique in the area.
Of the Mesozoic era, hard limestone from a long sedimentation (100 million years) following a complete immersion of the Jurassic, poor and uncultivated soil up until modern day.

 

Yield

Vinification

Harvested by hand during the day and placed in crates, the grapes are sorted and de-stemmed in the cellar. The alcoholic fermentation is temperature controlled (25°C max). Daily extraction and homogenization operations take place: pumping-over, rack and return, cappunching.

Total vat time is one month. Devatting and pressing of the pulp.

 

Ageing

Aged in French oak barrels (Tonnellerie Bordelaise, Taransaud, Saury, Laf te…) 2/3 new wood, for 12 to 16 months.

 

Tasting notes

Black robe : the black expresses its depth. Superb tears. A nose of fresh fruit preserves.
Silky and gourmet on the palate.
Expresses the terroir and concentration of maturity.

An exceptional wine of a rare elegance. A sophisticated wine.

 

Food pairing

Perfect with wild boar stew, partridge with lentils, duck breast with gs and an aged Cantal or epoisse cheese. Also delicious with a chocolate cake or French toast with red fruit.
