Meticulously selected grapes entered first a 4-day cold maceration, followed by temperature-controlled fermentation to retain the purity of fruit, elegance and freshness. Long and gentle 60-day extraction, parcel by parcel vinification, racking three times in vats and two times in barrels. Aging 18 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% second round). Barrels came from three various coopers with light to medium toasting and additional aging for 20+ months in bottles.

"A long, 40-day maceration extracted from this 2017 a euphoric nose of blackcurrant and blueberry with wonderful hints of leather and cut grass. Supported by powerful tannins, the palate is of remarkable density and deploys a long and delicious finish evoking a finely spiced, jam-like black fruit. Style and potential."
Le Guide Hachette des Vins, 2021
