A plot-selection cuvée from the Charbonnières locality
2016 – Garnet red, with a nose of wild red fruit (blackberries, raspberries, black cherries) which opens onto spices when aerated. On the palate: fleshy, mature, rounded. From nose to palate, the aromas are exactly the same, leading through to a fresh and liquorice-laced finish.
The grapes are hand picked in crates from mid-September onwards, and are fully destemmed before being vinified. Fermentation takes place at 25°C, and the wine is matured the traditional way in stainless-steel vats.
