Production technical data : 100% hand picked. The 100% destalked grapes undergo cold maceration. They then ferment for around twelve days at a temperature of 30°C, pumped over twice a day. Aging last 6 months on average in oak casks from the Allier and Vosges forests which have been used for 2 to 3 vintages. The wine is fined but not filtered.
Tasting notes : Lovely ruby colour. Well-balanced and subtle on the nose, with red berry and wild strawberry aromas. Smooth on the palate, with nice, smooth tannin with spicy notes.
Perfect food pairings : Grilled tripe sausages, chicken curry, eggs poached in red wine sauce and mushrooms, farm cheeses.
This wine can be enjoyed when young but will also age well for 5-6 years after bottling.
Serve at a temperature of 14°C
