Winemaking
The very wide range of soils of  Graves (stone, silt, clay and sand) provides fine and elegant wines, very complex and multi-layered. Priority is given to manual labour : trellising, de-budding, leaf-thinning and green harvests are all made by hand.Maximal duration of vatting for this wine is 21 days, depending on the balance and harmony of the vintage. The wine undergoes natural Malolactic fermentation in vats. Ageing process occurs in French oak barrels for 12 months and in vats for 6 months.

Winemaking
Pure and classic structure of a wine from Graves, with fresh berries, plum, redcurrant and some herbal and lighlty oaky notes; medium-bodied, with concentrated flavours and delicate, silky tannins coming from very ripe grapes.

Serving Suggestions
Extremely good vintage, very smooth, easy to associate with complex dishes, red meats with character and strong cheese. Open the bottle and let breath for at least one hour before drinking.
