Tasting notes

Brightness of fruit and an irresistible violets fragrance draws you in. A complex spectrum of blackberry, damson, caramelized cherry, wild herbs, fennel, peppery ruccola, marzipan and cacao further adds to the charismatic expression. Focused and polished with vibrant acidity, grippy tannins and a strong mineral graphite backbone giving a flinty restraint to the lush and chalky texture. A stylish and elegant wine which cleverly combines beautiful energy with gentle power.

Producer

TRAPICHE

Vinification and aging

The fruit is fermented in 100 hl concrete vases with native yeast typical of this vineyard. Then, classic maceration is conducted through daily delestage and pumping during three weeks, after which a pneumatic pressing is applied. Afterwards, racking and malolactic fermentation take place. Aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Ageing potential of 15 years.

Terroir

This incredible micro-terroir is characterized by having a sandy soil, made up of 89% sand, 6% silt and 5% clay. At a variable depth it is possible to find a layer of fragmented calcium carbonate that slightly limits the root’s growth.
