The characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon are very well represented in this wine: green bell peppers, well-ripened sour cherries and plums. The ripe tannins are long and intense, complex sustained by a high acidity. The aftertaste is dominated by green pepper mixed with black chocolate and espresso coffee.

Roasted quail, pheasant or wild boar stew

The intense fruity aromas, tannins and acidity of this elegant wine perfectly accompanies meals made from game meat or from good quality beef or lamb. Spices and coffee notes can perfectly complement a steak or stew of wild fowl meat, and the long after-taste enhances and prolongs the experience.

The grapes are hand-picked and then carefully selected on the sorting tables. The cold maceration of grapes takes between 3 and 5 days at a controlled temperature of 14 ° C. The alcoholic fermentation (100% by the addition of selected yeast) is controlled at 26-28 ° C between 6-8 days, followed by hot maceration (thermo maceration) between 15-20 days. 50% of the wine was matured in French oak barrels at second use, the remainder in French oak barrels at third use for 14 months.
