plendid dark ruby red colour. Bouquet: Very complex, fix and subtle, featuring notes of blackberries (blackcurrant, blackberry, bilberry). Palate: Noble, incredibly smooth and elegant with notes of flavourful dark fruits. Notes of nutmeg, liquorice and dark chocolate. Warm and infinite on the finish with rich and digestible tannins. Very beautiful sapidity. Located in the heart of Les Santenots du Milieu, with brown soil rich in magnesium on a layer of hard, rounded limestone. Steep slope with perfect natural drainage. Situated in the middle of the slope facing due east. The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 20 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation. 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged entirely in new oak barrels. Duration of barrel ageing: 17 months. ABV 13.5%
