Winemaking Notes: The fruit for this wine comes from a selection of old vines from two vineyards: Haux and Sainte-Marie. Winemaking was divided per parcels. The wine was fermented for 3 to 5 weeks in stainless steel tanks for a soft extraction of the tannins. Wine was aged in French oak barrels, 20% of which were new.
Tasting Notes: This wine has a deep crimson color with shads of purple. Aromas of small, concentrated berries. This wine is powerful and will soften with time. Aging potential of 3 to 10 years.
