Winemaking

Harvest at dawn, quick fermentation in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks for 12 to 14 days only to bring forth the fruit. Malolactic fermentation and ageing in stainless steel tanks.
Bottling in March, ageing in bottles.

Tasting notes

The deep color reveals an expressive nose of stone fruits such as prunes. In mouth the attack is supple and frank. The finish reveals aromas of scrubland and cubeb pepper, it is underlined by finely mentholated notes.

Wine and food pairings

Trilogy of small stuffed dishes.
Sirloin steak, shallot fondue and creamy purée.
Eggplant parmesan.
Matured cheese : Saint-Nectaire / Abondance.
Chocolate cake with Italian meringue and mint.
