Following in the footsteps of the previous vintages, the 2016 is a beautiful deep ruby red colour with deep purple tints. Its expressive, intense bouquet is one of ripe fruits, vanilla and spices with just the right degree of toastiness. The fatty, fruity tannins on attack fill out on the mid-palate, displaying balance and great length - another triumph for this cru, which confirms its status as one of the elites of the appellation.
Made from a blend of 10% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 80% Merlot Noir.
This small vineyard is tended like a garden with the utmost respect for the environment using sustainable viticultural methods, and has HVE (high environmental value) and ISO 140001 certification. The soil is tilled or left with grass cover; desuckering is done in April/May, leaf-stripping (on the easterly side) and crop-thinning in June/July. Integrated pest management is applied. The grapes are harvested by hand and by machine, then sorted manually on a sorting table at reception. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in small concrete vats, the grapes from each parcel being kept separate. After fermentation, the grapes are left in the vats on the skins for 3-5 weeks. After de-vatting, the wines are aged for 12-18 months in French oak barrels made by the best coopers and regularly renewed.
