The grapes are harvested at optimum maturity, and following cold pre-fermentation maceration they remain in tanks for two to four weeks. Temperatures are maintained below 28° to ensure that all the fruit and varietal characters of the wine are preserved.
This Cabernet Sauvignon lives up to all its initial promise, with a deep garnet colour and complex aromas of red fruits with spicy pepper notes.
The palate is vigorous, with silky tannins and great finesse.
Food and wine pairing: game stew, roast beef with mushrooms, Beaufort.
