This wine comes from the oldest plots of vineyard owned by the winery: they are called the “Jewels”. The youngest vineyard was planted in 1953. The oldest dates back from the end of 1800’s, probably 1880. The fermentationmaceration takes place in small deposits of concrete covered by epoxy (4000-liters) It usually last from 25 to up to 30 days. Piegages, remontages are used more or less frequently depending on the tasting, observation, and experience. Ageing is exclusively in new French oak barrels of 225 liters for 20 months… We use the best barrels Iwe can obtainfrom by our favorite french barrel makers. We use the lees moving them during the first months to enhance complexity and roundness.
Deep color. On the nose it is vivacious , candied bouquet of blueberry, cassis,… after a long decantation the wine will display all its potencial -very elegant, intense and complex aromas of cassis, blueberry, blackcherries, plum, tabaco leaf, a touch of minerality (sometimes described as incense or lead pencil), and more if you are patient. In the mouth the dark cherries and cassis are dominant, followed by a range of complex aromas ending in a very nice balance. The wine shows great power and opulence but also has elegance and freshness.
We recommend to enjoy this wine with red meats in particular or roasts, mature cheeses. Important to serve the wine at cool temperature, 13ºc approx.
