Technical notes

Vinification: the fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature (28° C) with frequent pumping over of the must to optimise the extraction of tannins and colour. The maceration lasts around 15 days.

Ageing: The ageing begins in barrels made of French oak (Allier). The wine stays in wood for around one year, and is then bottled in January before further ageing in the cellars.

Pairings

Perfect with big red meat dishes and with medium to mature cheeses.
