The colour is deep with violet highlights. On the nose it is complex with cherry, violet and licorice.The initial taste on the palate is refreshing with blackcurrant aromas. Rich and fleshy with velvety tannins, lovely well balanced wine with long ending and moka notes.
Ready to taste but can be kept for 5 to 7 years.
One of our favourites. We have been working with brothers Nicolas and Arnaud Bergasse for many years.
In the heart of Languedoc, in Saint-Chinian. Here, in the south of France, on limestone terraced hills, the vines share the land and sun with the garrigue and olive trees. Their family vineyard consists of 98 acres on which we use a system of sustainable agriculture in order to preserve the lasting quality of its soils.
In fact, the property has been in their family for nearly five centuries (since 1551), passed down from generation to generation. In the grounds of our property we’ve found the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa. The house itself dates from 1911, and is decorated with a Bacchic fresco, showing that the family has always had a tradition of wine-making and festivity.
Traditional vinifications with long macerations. Extraction by «rack and return» technic and «punch down» only.
Oak ageing during 12 months in french barrels for 20% of the selection.
