Deep and complex wine. Nose where black fruits rub shoulders with spices, nuances of toasted almonds, sweet flowers and liquorice. The palate is elegant and slender but concentrated. The touch on the palate is velvety, and the tannins deep. A final graphite on the purity of the shale terroir. Vines planted in high density, 8000/10000 vines per hectare. Without insecticide, the number of treatments is limited depending on the weather, the very low fertilizer supply is exclusively organic, respecting the balance of the soil and the plant. Control of vigor and yields, leaf stripping, green harvesting for better ripening of the grapes. The grapes are harvested manually. In the cellar, sorting, crushing and partial destemming. Fermentation in open vats for approximately 3 weeks with temperature control, punching down and regular pumping over. Malolactic fermentation in barrels, with natural yeasts. Aged for 16 months in barrels. ABV 13%
