77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot. Vibrant maroon with a purple tint, this wine presents a fresh aromatic bouquet of black, red, and blue berries, intertwined with delicate violet notes, cherry pip, and hints of pie crust. Earthy and savory tones reminiscent of gravel stones, damp forest, and cedar steam contribute to its complexity. The palate offers an explosion of luscious dark berries, exhibiting both sweetness and finesse, while the robust structure unfolds with impressive length. Notable are the super fine tannins, vibrant acidity, and a memorable, distinct character. Winter rains and moderate spring conditions maintained healthy canopies, with a warm and dry summer leading to an early but steady harvest. Individualized treatment of small fruit parcels ensured preservation of fruit nuances and extraction of refined tannins. Maturation occurred in 100% French oak for 18 months (54% new, 46% 1-4 years old), highlighting the wine's intricate qualities. ABV 14.5%
