  • Pairing Suggestions Enjoy this wine with scallop and truffle ravioli, warm duck foie gras with hazelnuts, roast green asparagus with truffles and Parmesan, or all on its own!
  • Tasting Notes Blackish, deep purple and somewhat crimson color. Enigmatic. Powerful bouquet of licorice, with subtle hints of chocolate, blackberry, and stewed blackcurrant. Rich and full boded on the palate with finely grained tannin and an ethereal sort of elegance. A svelte, thoroughbred wine.

  • Vineyard The vineyard is planted in a superb silty-clay terroir ideal for winegrowing. The vines are located on the third terraces of the Cahors Valley. Its density is unusually high: 50% of the vineyard has a density of 6,666 vines per hectare, i.e. 65% more than the local average.
  • Vinification The wine making is done with lot of rigor: parcellar selection, pre-fermentation maceration, slow “remontages”. The wine is aged for 18 months in Allier wood barel.
