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.

Deep ruby. Powerful, smoke-accented aromas of ripe dark berries and cherry pit pick up a subtle incense nuance with aeration. Densely packed bitter cherry, cassis and succulent herb flavors deepen and become sweeter on the back half. Closes juicy, broad and long; building tannins lend shape and solid grip.
