Our 0.30 hectares on 50 year old vines are located on a reddish brown clay soil with a good mixture of limestone.
A dark ruby color gives way to flavors of plum, spice and earth. This complex wine has a powerful middle weight that supports an extended finish.
Best served at 15 -16 C/59 - 61 F, this wine can be served with grilled lamb and pork, wild game, beefy stews with garlic and mushrooms, pheasant or duck, and a wide variety of strongly- flavored cheeses.
