Tasting notes

As you lift the glass, the nose reveals a symphony of intense youthful aromas. Imagine a kitchen where caramelized brown sugar dances in a warm pan, its sweetness mingling with memories of cozy evenings. The air carries the essence of ripe black cherries, their skins bursting with flavor. And there, like a hidden treasure, the allure of blackberries, plucked from sun-kissed vines. On the palate, the wine continues its enchantment. Picture a basket of tart crabapples, their crispness awakening your taste buds. A drizzle of salted caramel weaves richness into the experience, balancing sweet and savory. And once again, the familiar embrace of blackberries, juicy and dark, lingers on the tongue.

Food pairing

This wine pairs perfectly with beef carpaccio, eggplant parmesan, duck confit.

Winemaker notes

After a period of drying, the juice was pressed of its skins. Post fermentation, the wine was aged for 17 months in a combination of French and American oak 23% of which was new.
