Tasting notes

The cellar’s flagship wine, a cuvee of Bordeaux wines: Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Merlot (10%). It is matured first for 24 months in new, small oak barrels after which it develops further for at least another three years in bottles. Characterized by shades of deep dark red tending to crimson. It is a velvety, full-bodied wine: in its bouquet can be sensed ripe cherries and tobacco, while in flavour chocolate and vanilla appear alongside overripe fruit.

2012 was a year of extreme cold and hot temperatures. The winter freeze was followed by a long, dry spring and summer. The extra warmth brought early budding and an early vintage. The year produced wines of outstanding quality and high alcohol content.
