Merlot | barrique 1er Cru
Flexibility and elegance, this Merlot has a strong personality, reinforced by its ageing in oak barrels. Round, full-bodied, it is distinguished by frank and very balanced tannins, flavours of blackcurrant supported by nuances of black fruit, cherry and plum. In the mouth, blackberry and gingerbread flavours. Intense colour, dark garnet. Accompanies red meats, spit meats, lamb, tournedos and cheeses. Cold pre-fermentation maceration followed by a traditional vatting. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels. Vinified in mono-varietal and blending. South exposure on a very well adapted terroir. Low vine in Guyot. Clay and silty soil, moraine, grassy soil, steep slope.
