Tasting Notes & Pairings:
This wine has a purple robe that evolves as time goes by, from a deep garnet to a deep ruby red. After a few years, it develops aromas of iris, faded roses, spices of ripe fruit with an undertone of wood and truffles; it is tannic and robust. When the wine is young, it is floral and fruity, with the aromas of violets, black currants and cherries. On the palate, the finesse of the tannins, along with the breadth and minerality give this wine its nobility and prestige with a robust and complex mouth.
Best paired with red meat, cheese and charcuterie (delicatessen meats).
Best served between 57°-59° F (14°-15 °C)
This vineyard has a good proportion of soils from pink granite and a rather lenient topography due to an average altitude. The granitic soils are quite evolved and take root on moderate slopes. At the top of its 278 meters, surrounded by the vineyard, the windmill (Moulin à Vent), classified as a historical monument, embodies the prestige and pride of the appellation. Located in two communes, it benefits from a homogeneous territory. Undeniably, it is a wine of guard (up to ten years based on the vintage).
