This is the flagship cuvée of one of the finest estates in the Boutenac sub-region. The blend is dominated by some wonderful old-vine Carignan, and is made with the same care and attention as a fine claret, including up to 12 months’ maturation in Bordeaux barriques. This is an immensely deep and powerful wine, boasting an explosive bouquet of forest fruit compote, leather, roasted coffee, clove and toast notes. Firmly structured, muscular and richly flavoured. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, therefore decant before serving. Pair with rib of beef.
