Bordeaux

The 2011 Vintage : The sunny summer and the exceptional late autumn contributed to perfecting the success of this vintage, with the optimal maturing of the grapes.  Blending : 85% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec Production : 145,000 bottles Vinification : In stainless steel and wooden vats. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration for 4 weeks with temperature regulation. Ageing : 15 months in new barrels (40% of the volume) with malolactic fermentation and ageing on lees for 6 months. 12 months in year-old barrels (40%) and 2-year-old barrels (20%) Yields : 42 hl/ha Tasting notes : Deep black colour. A very complex nose with a rich aromatic expression with scents of black fruit and fine spicy notes. The palate develops an opulent, concentrated, flavoursome substance, elevated by silky tannins and great length. Notes and awards : Markus Del Monego (Tasted) 92/100 Dark purple red with violet hue and black centre. Elegant nose with closed character, hints of dark berries, plums and black cherries. On the palate, well structured with good mouthfeel, freshness, medium weight and good length. Promising wine. Andreas Larsson (Tasted) 92/100 Dark ruby with a purple hue. Still youthful nose with pure dark fruit - blackberry, plum, mineral, fine oak and cigar box notes. The palate has a very good density and richness, rich fruit, grainy but present tannin, layered and very long finish, stylish with fine potential for development.
