Winemaking and Aging

To preserve their integrity, grapes
are carefully harvested and sorted
out by hand.
Before beginning the alcoholic
fermentation we make a cold prefermentation during 4 to 6 days to
work on the phelonic
component's exctraction. 10%
whole clusters were used. Then
full maceration lasts for 15 days
during which we'll use only
pigeages (punching the cap).
Intensity and numbers are lead to
the concentration of tannins,
perfumes and colour.
Alcoholic fermentation is realized
with natural yeasts.

After maceration, free and press
wines are separated for aging.
Aging process is taking place
100% in traditional Burgundian
228 liters barrels during 15
months. 70% new barrels.
We only use French oak coming
mainly from Bourgogne, Allier
and Vosges forests.
The wine spends 3 more months
in tanks before bottling.

Tasting notes

Shinny red colour with ruby reflects.

After aeration, the nose expresses itself on mature
red fruits aromas with floral and spices touches.

In the mouth, the attack is straight and fruity with an
ample and fresh mid-palate and finish.
