Area of production : IGP du Comté Tolosan
Grape varieties : 100% Malbec
Climate conditions : Early bud burst announced a precocious vintage last spring. Excellent weather conditions were favourable to flowering, suggesting a good upcoming harvest.vJune and July were wet, with an important number of rainy days rather than high pluviometry. Summer finally began in the first days of August and lasted until the end of October, allowing optimum ripeness. After a very tense early summer, grapes were finally picked with a smile, in a relaxed working atmosphere. The wines issue from this harvest show high density, crispy freshness and great finesse. A great vintage for sure!
Winemaking and ageing: Full destemming and crushing, followed by slow fermentation at 28°C. Skin maceration with "pigeage" for 15 days, followed by 8 months of ageing in concrete tanks. Slightly filtered before bottling.
Storage in a temperature controlled warehouse.
Tasting notes : Dark red colour. Very fruity nose, both powerful and elegant. Very round and soft on the palate with great fruit intensity.
Food recommandation : Enjoy this wine by itself, or pair with cheese, pizzas,grilled meat and pasta.
