Vinification and ageing
After harvesting by hand, the grapes are sorted on a vibrating table to remove dry berries, leaf debris and stalks. They then pass to another sorting table for the removal of any grapes that are unripe, damaged or showing signs of rot. The sound grapes are pressed to facilitate the extraction of colour and flavours. Before passing on to the vat, the grapes are stemmed: the removal of the stalks reduces the astringency of the future wine.
Fermentation is begun slowly, using native yeasts, and continues for between 10 and 15 days.
All of the resulting wine is then aged in barrels for two years.

Keeping properties
Can be kept for up to five years.

Tasting notes
An attractive feature of this wine is its dark red colour with sparkling ruby highlights.
The nose takes time to develop, disclosing aromas of red berry fruits, such as black cherry and blackcurrant.
The tannins, though well in evidence, have mellowed, giving this wine its lingering, well-rounded flavour.

Food and wine pairing
Loin of lamb with mild herbs.

Uncork one hour before drinking to let the aromas develop.
Between 14 and 16°C.
