Red wine with glints of garnet, crystalline and sparkling color with a strong intensity. On the nose, at first the wine is discreet, it slowly reveals empyreumatic notes of spices and black fruit. After airing a bit, there appear notes of dry dates, spiced bread, grilled bread, caramel, and cocoa beans. The attack in the mouth is frank. Tannins are present and very well balanced. A long maturation is necessary to soften and dissolve the tannins. Dominant is retro-olfactory peppery notes in addition to notes of cinnamon and vanilla extract. Aged 12 months in barrels of new oak from the Vosges used for the finesse of the aromas. Bottles are spent many months resting before commercialization. Yield 36hl/ha.
