Winemaking
Stainless steel tanks larger than higher (3.50m large, 1.50m high) conceived by Jean Guyon are used in order to have more juice in contact with the grape marc. Thermo-regulated truncated vats are used for a cold pre-fermentation maceration. Vatting lasts 4 to 6 weeks following the alcoholic fermentation. A malolactic fermentation takes then place in new oak barrels for 2/3 of the wine.
Ageing
Lees stirring for 3 months and aged for 12 months in 100% French Oak barrels (2/3 in new barrels, 1/3 in 1-year old barrel).
Harvests
Hand-picked, the grapes are sorted twice on arrival at the winery once on a sorting table, once manually.

Tasting Notes
92/100 (2015 Vintange) - Wine Advocate - Neal Martin
Barrel Sample. Smoothly textured, this wine has ripe tannins under generous blackberry fruit flavors, making for a voluptuous palate. The end brings in the essential acidity.
92/100 (2015 Vintage) - James Suckling -
