Tasting Notes:
Combines power and grace. A super Cote Rotie, on the elegant side of the spectrum. Black fruits and not too much oak here.

Handpicked harvest, sorting of the healthy and well-ripened grapes. Total de-stemming. Cold maceration before fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation at 35°C. Maceration after fermentation at 30°C. Malolactic fermentation in barrels.

Aged 18 months in new oak from Allier and Nevers. Barrels 50% new with oxygen added every 4 months.

Critic Reviews:
'Deep lurid ruby. Mineral-accented aromas of ripe dark berries and pungent flowers, joined by a spicy nuance that builds in the background. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering appealingly sweet blackberry and violet pastille flavors and a touch of smokiness. Puts on weight with air while maintaining vivacity and focus. Finishes bright, supple and long, displaying very good clarity, well-knit tannins and building spiciness.' 92/100 (
