50% Cabernet Sauvignon/50% Merlot

The 2018 vintage was a real test of patience. The first 6 months of the year were dominated by incessant rainfall and mild temperatures. The weather then changed radically on the 15th of July, marking the start of a hot summer with periods of drought. The harvest period stretched from late August to late October, with the grapes reaching excellent levels of maturity. This exceptionally long and rain-free harvest period allowed them to fine-tune their picking operations. In the cellar the juices proved to be very consistent, with a beautiful color. This was an unusual year with extreme conditions, but in the end it turned out to be an excellent vintage.

A deliciously fruity nose, with cherry and blueberry aromas. Well-rounded and velvety-smooth on the palate with overtones of blackberry, blackcurrant and chocolate. A vintage defined by its elegant tannins and aromatic precision.
