The fine and polished texture really pulls you into this wine with blueberry, chocolate and blackberry aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine tannins and a clean finish. Very pretty. Pure Cabernet Franc. Drink or hold - James Suckling

Vinification: The carefully selected grapes are grown in the estate’s best vineyard at altitudes of 200 m a.s.l. They are manually harvested in the first week of September.

The wine was then transferred into 225 l French oak barrels (Allier and Troncais) where malolactic fermentation is completed and it is aged for 20 months. Afterwards the wine remains for a further fining in bottle at least 12 months before its release on the market.
