Traditional vinification in thermo-regulated stainless steel. Pre-fermentation - cold maceration. Long fermentation during which pigeages and pumping over are performed. Post-fermentation - maceration at 30°C for 5 days. Ageing in oak barrrels between 8 to 16 months. 40 to 50% of new oak.
Beautiful colour with coppery reflections.
After fews years in bottle, the nose is complex, fine and distinguished: spices, undergrowth, black fruits, faded flowers.
In the mouth the tannins have softened but keep power and richness with a mineral note bringing character and personality on the finish.
Grilled red meat with sauce, beef steak, lamb or poultry stew pairs well with the firm texture of the tannins and concentrated flavors. Cheeses with flavors developed : Epoisses, Langres, Soumaintrain, Livarot, Pont-l'Evêque but also Comté.
