Planted in the late 80's through the early 90's on steep slopes with slate and clay soils. The grapes are destemmed and fermented for two weeks, then aged for 20 months in barrels, about half new, and bottled without filtration. This wine is almost more reminiscent of Cabernet Franc than most modern Cabernet Sauvignon, with plenty of lift and deeply earthy flavors. Tart berry fruit with currants and blackberries forming a core inflected by cedar, violets, and forest floor. Elegant with very fine tannins and plenty of acidity, this will stand up to richer foods like steak or leg of lamb without issue. It will continue to age gracefully for at least a decade. A stunning bottle of wine in a style not often found anymore. andnbsp;
