Aging is developed in new french oak barrels and new tonneaux (allier) for 12-18 months; micro-oxygenation may occur during this practice. Then last step in bottle for at least 2 months.
Deeply garnet-red coulored, this wine has elegant flavours, smelling of fruits and flowers, in particular you can clearly perceive aromas of fruit compote. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, balanced, compact with a pleasing mouthfeel and long finish.
