Food pairing

Enjoy with a wild mushroom omelet, beef filets, veal stew, or with a dessert of chocolate and cherry cake.

Vinification

The vinification is very traditional in style. After a light crushing, fermentation takes place in closed concrete tanks for 15 to 20 days, at 28-30 Celsius. Two daily pump-overs and lees stirring are carried out during the alcoholic fermentation. After completing its malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in 100 year old oak vats as well as concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. Bottling takes place in the autumn/winter of the year following the harvest.

Vintage

2016 was an exceptional year. The reds are aromatic, powerful, round, fine and balanced, while the whites display freshness, full body and great length.
