Coming from the top of the Butte (hill) on limestone bedrock and silica.
Strong sorting. 3 weeks maceration on skin and soft extraction. 12 month maturation in french oak barrels (partly new)
Aromas of ripe but fresh fruit with intense blackcurrant notes as well as spice and hints of mint. A wine of purity with silky tannin and sensational freshness and length.
Serve at 15-16ºC with rillettes, red and white meat, lamb
