Tasting notes

The spirit of this micro-cuvée is to restore the maximum potential of the diversity of the terroir and to offer a new original parcel-based cuvée.
The aromatic complexity is very original. On the palate, the wood melts with the greedy structure of the wine to give way to a tannic and mineral finish.
The light maceration has reinforced the expression of the terroir.

Our favorite pairings: on gourmet salted appetizers (rillauds, rillettes, saucisson...), or grilled andouillettes but also on cheeses.
