The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 16 months.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Intense aromas of red fruit (cherry) with a hint of chocolate and a delicate vanilla note. Dense and generous. Beautiful fruit combination. Delicate oak note and refined tannins. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : Red and white meat roasted or "en sauce", game, cheeses.
