Wine Technology:

All the vines are very low yielded. Very well matured grapes of the selected marl-grown vines.
Before maceration a part of the must is taken away to concentrate the tannins and colour (saigne). 10 days of classic maceration in stainless steel tank. Aged for 16 months in new French oak barrique barrels Louis Latour. Controlled malolactic fermentation, 4 months of active batonaging.

Wine Description:

Excitingly massive. Elegant after 6 years.
Red wine with rich aromas of ripe red fruits, dry plums and jam. On the nose and palate soil and smoke notes present as well as the elegance of aristocratic Louis Latour oak barrel. The wine is slightly tannic with preserved freshness.
It is matured, ready to be enjoyed today but also suitable for aging 5 – 10 years.

Food and Wine

Recommended to all kinds of red meat, venison and spicy dishes. Best to be enjoyed by itself in good company.

Weather Characteristics of Vintages:

Early budding, which was halted by an extremely rainy and cold May. Hot June tried to make up for the backlog, which was re-created by the rainy and cold beginning of July. The optimum summer with just the right amount of daylight follows, ending with an extremely windy and arid month of August. A classic vintage with fluctuating weather, unpredictable all the way. The harvest begins in late August.
