The Pays d’Oc area’s Mediterranean climate and plenty of sunshine help the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes reach optimum ripeness. This wine is made from selected parcels farmed by Terra Vitis-certified partners. Its character comes from three complementary terroirs:
• Hérault and the Villafranchien soil terraces of the north-east brings structure
• Gard and its clay-gravel soils make the wine powerful and rich Aude brings varietal typicity, freshness and aromatic range
Vinification is carried out following strict specifications. The saignée method plus maceration and extraction for a period of four to five weeks at controlled temperature give good concentration and structure.
The wine is then aged with staves (one of the best ways to impart an oaked profile) for four to six months, giving it aromatic complexity and depth. The result is a rich, powerful wine with black fruit and spice.
