Alcohol/vol 15%
The deep colour immediately testifies to the richness of this wine, which is then confirmed by aromas of black berries, pepper and eucalyptus that harmoniously merge together and create great depth. It is striking for how it manages to support an impressive structure with lightness and tension, making it powerful yet at the same time agile on the palate. Food Pairing: Particularly suited to rich and succulent meat dishes, such as lamb, pigeon, duck, and hare, as well as to stews and meat braised in red wine. Perfect with a fine selection of mature cheese. Serve at 16-18 °C and open at least one hour before drinking.

Dark chocolate and espresso notes open the bouquet of this concentrated Cabernet Franc. Round and soft, with power and personality, this penetrating wine sits long on the palate, and it imparts bright fruit and spice notes with time. The tannins are tight, firm and polished. Drink after 2016.

This red is rich and round, exuding cherry, sandalwood and tobacco notes. A solid backbone lends support, while the finish echoes the fruit and spice. Best from 2013 through 2022.
