Colour

Deep burgundy red.

Tasting Notes

Deep, burgundy red in colour with dark after tones. Well balanced with a wonderful texture and velvety tannins, softening the innate zesty acidity typical of this Alpine variety. This wine releases aromas of ripe plums, figs and truffles. The firm acid backbone and fine powdery tannins show off the distinctive and intense fruit characters to full benefit, while guaranteeing this wine will improve for a decade and beyond.

Food Matching

This wine would be best served with rich pork dishes, cacciatore, and casseroles.

Cellaring

Fresh, lively and vibrant drinking now, will improve for many years. Likely peak 2024 to 2030.

Winemaking

Sourced from 20 years old vines planted rocky loam soils, located on the Central eastern slopes of the Pyrenees ranges at 280 metres. The grapes were machine harvested early-March, crushed, de-stemmed and pressed into stainless tanks. Fermentation took place over 18 days with selected yeast, after this the wine was transferred into French and Hungarian oak barrels (two and four years old). The wine was kept on lees contact for a further four months. Finally, after five months the wine was racked, stabilised and prepared for bottling.
