One can expect highly concentrated flavours of black forest berries infused with spice, cedar and vanilla. Extended skin contact and ageing in small French barriques have contributed to its complexity.

This wine is the perfect accompaniment to classic hearty fare such as roast beef or lamb. The connoisseur’s preferred red blend.

ageing : 15 - 20 years

in the vineyard : Sun worshiping, open armed lyre trellised vines, ensure maximum fruit ripeness. Oak leaf and weathered granite soils ensure these vines are planted in soils rich in organic matter.

in the cellar : Highly concentrated grapes with intense flavour of each cultivar are hand-selected to produce this expressive and full-bodied wine. The three cultivars are blended after 6 months and allowed to age for a further 18 months in new French oak. This wine is produced only in exceptional years and rarely exceeds 20 barrels.
