Traditional semi-carbonic whole bunch vinification

We seek to produce the best of each of our appellations according to the climatic characteristics of the vintage. Our primary objective lies in obtaining local wines that best characterize our protected designations of origin.

Our plots are harvested manually and vinified separately in cement vats. The   carbonic maceration lasts 11 days with regular punching down and pumping over in order to work as much as possible to extract the phenolic matter from our grapes. The malolactic fermentation is carried out then the Moulin à Vent is aged for  8-9 months before bottling.

Winemaker's tasting:A deep ruby color, aromas of ripe fruit, undergrowth and spices. On the palate, the wine is fine, fresh and complex with melted tannins. Black fruits with a beautiful harmony. This racy wine will not leave you indifferent. To keep all the complexity of the fruit, we invite you to drink this wine within 4 years and up to 7 years for lovers of cellar-aged wines.
