Made only in exceptional years, this wine is a very limited production.
Terroir: A similar terroir to that of Chenas, this is a very small production wine of four separate parcels with vines averaging 65 years old, but with many over 100 years.
Vinification: Grapes are vinified separately until time for the final blending and bottling. The must is macerated in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 12-15 days and then aged for 12-14 months in a combination of new and used oak casks.

Saturated ruby. Deep-pitched dark berry, cherry pit and woodsmoke aromas show very good clarity, picking up a smoky quality with air. Juicy and tightly focused, offering vibrant blackberry and bitter cherry flavors enlivened by tangy acidity. Shows very good depth and power, finishing sweet, smoky and very long, with dusty tannins lending grip.
