80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards situated at an altitude of 110 metres above sea level in the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux, between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers.
Grapes were destemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation at 25°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The two varieties were vinified separately, and 50% aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, one third of which were new. The other 50% was aged in vats. The wine was then blended and bottled.
Elegant and round on the palate with lingering berry fruit. Well structured and full bodied, this wine perfectly represents the great character and authentic personality of the great red Bordeaux.
