Working the vines : This parcel is tended by a vine-grower who takes care of the vineyard up to the harvest. Working with the cycle of nature, he enables the terroir to fully express its nuances from vintage to vintage.

Vinification and maturing : Following hand picking in small cases, ruthless sorting of the grapes, total or partial destemming depending on the vintage, and fermentation in small containers, gentle pressing ensures optimal vinification. Depending on the profile of the vintage, vatting lasts 12 to 15 days before maturing is carried out for 10 to 18 months in French oak barrels, with 60 to 85% new barrels.
 
General wine notes: Fruit aromas combined with animal notes and an oaky touch. A rich, robust and intense wine with spicy and peppery notes, calling for a bit of patience while it opens up completely. Very good ageing potential. 
 
Food-wine suggestions: Wild boar - Venison - Red meat in sauce
