The vinification integrale technique

Grapes from the best plots are vinified in 500 litre (132 gallon) oak barrels, turned by hand as many as six times a day at the start of vinification. This early integration of wood, before the maturing process, gives a concentration of colour and aromas and makes a more generous, noble and complex wine.

Aging process

18 months.

To the eye - ouverture

In the mouth - largo

An ample, silky mouthfeel..

Finish

Perfectly balanced, with a long finish worthy of the greatest Bordeaux wines.

Serving

at 18-19°C (64-66°F) xafter being decanted, ideally an hour before being served to give the wine its full expression.

Cellaring

It can already be enjoyed now and has a 20-year cellaring potential.
