The property is currently being converted to organic farming methods.
It has a luminous ruby red colour.
On the nose it displays refined notes of morello cherries and fruit preserved in brandy, along with tones of aromatic herbs and minerals.
It is a well-structured but pleasantly rounded wine, thanks to its elegant, well-calibrated tannins.
