Vineyard

This wine comes from a vineyard called “Le Ratanaud” composed of blue clay. These hillsides, located between 330 and 350m of altitude have a south exposition, which bring freshness and perfect maturity to the wine.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked and sorted at the vineyard. They are fully destemmed then fermented in concrete tanks, each grape separately. Vatting time is between 28 to 35 days with daily grape-treading and pumping-over. Ageing is then in concrete tanks for fifteen months.

Tasting notes

Intense red colour. Pleasant nose of raspberry liquor and wild pepper. The palate is full and smooth, with cherry and licorice stick aromas.

Food pairing

Grilled eggplant and feta cheese – Matured prime rib – Lamb shoulder and garlic cream – Auvergne blue cheese – Red wine strawberries.
