This Gold Collection “Notre Cadeau Pour Vous” is a blend of our best vineyard blocks of our Bordeaux varietals. Nine best barrels were selected for an optimum blend of concentrated dark fruit flavor, integrated well-structured tannin, and lush mouthfeel.
With lovely layers of dark fruit, this richly textured wine has a lush finish of cherry, black crrant and plum. Pairs with peppercorn-crusted steak, lamb stew, and mushroom risotto.
Moderate summer and fall temperatures made for a very long ripening season. During this long “hang time” there was no appreciable rainfall, and the flavors were allowed to fully develop.
The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After cold-soaking for three days to extract rich color, the must fermented on the skins for three weeks to obtain a richly extracted wine.
