Harvest Note
A moderate year with more consistent rainfall in spring, which made temperatures slightly cooler than average. Then things warmed up at the beginning of June and the vines blossomed, albeit slightly later than usual. The summer recorded average temperatures with good fluctuations between day and night. It can be considered a good vintage.
Tasting Note
Deep ruby red in color, with a bouquet that features intriguing notes of ripe red fruit, accompanied by scents of brushwood. Full-bodied, vibrant upon entry, it floods the palate with its dense and elegant tannic texture, closing with a persistent and beautifully crisp finish.
Food Pairing
Pair with braised or roasted meats and hard cheeses.

About the Grape

Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc usually shows tart red cherry and wild currant aromas and flavors with an herbal, spicy character. In the Loire, esp. Chinon and Saumur-Champigny, this grape shows firm minerality.
Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is adaptable to various growing conditions, and is known for its low yield and late ripeness. It generally produces full-bodied wines with substantial acidity and tannins.
Merlot makes plump, succulent wines to drink young or opulently massive wines for aging. Has silky, blackberry and currant fruit, with spice, earth, tobacco and chocolate notes, and soft tannins.
Petit Verdot
Petit Verdot makes a dark, firmly structured, tannic wine with superbly balancing acidity, and fresh, full flavors and aromas of spice, pepper and black fruits with notes of violets.
