Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon
8 hectares (20 acres) of 20-year-old vines
growing in sandy clayey gravel.
Mechanical harvest. The fruit is sorted with
optical screening equipment.
The juice is fermented at a low temperature
in order to lock in the freshness and fruity
aromas. Vatting is short in order to highlight
the roundness of the tannins.
Fruity nose of berries and cherry with a slight
peppery hint. Velvety, chewy tannins.
Sustained ﬁnish of red fruit
jelly and blueberry.
Displays modern appeal. Hints of mocha with grilled and fruity notes. The wood is noticeable, but it has mellowed and the tannins are round.
Note: 16 - Decanter Magazine
Aromas of cake and dessert, as well as sweet spice with peppery overtones and hints of fresh leather and redcurrant. The wine is round and smooth, which is quite outstanding for this difficult year.
Note: 84 - Robert Parker - erobertparker.com - april 2014
Good weight of vibrant red and black fruit with a real touch of elegance yet high acidity. Fresh, elegant, easy-drinking proper Bordeaux. Just a touch too light. 3 Star Wines Recommanded - Score: 15,17.
