The vines are planted on clay-limestone slopes, with some prominent patches of deep gravels. And heavy stones.

Tasting Notes:

This  beautiful blend has a full bouquet of dark summer berries. The richness of the Merlot comes thru on the front of the palate providing bursts of  ripe red berries, and light spices.  Mid palate the wine shows the early mature structure as the varietals compliment each other with soft but full mature tannins, more spice, light pepper and soft textures.  The deep ruby red color in the glass  is intense and pleasing.

Pair with rich plates, aged  cheeses, grilled red meats or game ,

roasted vegetables and entrees with sauces.

Serving temperature 17/18C
