Pale yellow with golden hints, brilliant. Thick with slow tears. Herbs tones and spices. Mineral and saline character, balsamic with a slight touch of honey and lemon. Perfect integrated wood. Good acidity. Sharp touch of wood bringing toffee, condensed milk and nuts.

These grapes were subject to a triple selection: in the vineyard, selection of bunches and selection of grapes.

Wine making: Selection of the grapes and cooling with carbonic ice.
– Pre-fermentative maceration in deposits for 72 hours.
– Free run juice extraction.
– Fermentation in square barriques.
– Ageing in square barriques of French oak for 5 months with daily bâtonnage.
– Bottle ageing for 12 months.
