« Cuvée Vieilles Vignes » Red 2016
Out of stock
All the vines are situated on a plateau, on a limestone red clay soil. The vineyards are grassed down to create competition with the vines and naturally lower the yields to improve quality. A plot of Merlot grapes have been especially selected for this Cuvée. All the vines are leaf plucked to help colour development and to avoid botrytis (grey rot). Since 2005, the vineyard has been converted to organic
The grapes are mechanically harvested and are cold macerated for 10 days prior to fermentation. During alcohol fermentation, the grapes are punched down to extract colour and tannins. Once finished, 100% is racked and aged in French oak barrels for 10 months.
Ruby red, intense red fruit, plum, blackberry, biscuit, vanilla, soft firm tannins and long finish.
All meat dishes, cheese, dessert, and after a meal, as a drink.Download the technical sheets
