(Price per bottle: sent in boxes of 6 bottles)
This vintage is elaborated with a selection of our old vines, of which half is planted on clay gravels and the other half on sandy gravels.
Vinified and aged a year in oak barrels from the Berry in our underground cellar, the barrels are then blended together and aged for a year in a tank, then again for a year in the bottle, before being put on the market.
Powerful wine, with complex aromas, rich of exotic savours mixed with walnuts.
Will pair beautifully with seasoned and spicy meals. Smoked fish, a pan of fried scallops, dishes with curry…
To enjoy between 3 and 8 years. Although our wines do keep longer!
