Hand picking. De-stemming, second selection on sorting table. 20 a 30 days of maceration into vinification vats with very gentle extraction, essentially from punching the cap during the middle of fermentation. After de-vatting, wines are tranfered into barrels for malolactic fermentation.
18 month in french oak 500L barrels (30% new oak) and ceramic amphoras.
Rich and complex nose with aromas of black fruits, spicy and notes of liquorice. Velvety tannins envelop the palate with an exceptionnal balance.
