The estate’s traditional wine is produced using vines aged 20 years on average and is usually made up of all the different grape varieties grown on the property:
Therefore, the blend is generally around :
20% Cabernet Sauvignon
9% Cabernet Franc
This assemblage, however, varies according to the vintage in order to favor the most supple and aromatic cuvées.
Merlot gives it suppleness, fruity and roundness; Cabernet-Sauvignon provides structure and additional tannic density. The two complementary grape-varieties will give this wine a greater complexity. Cabernet Franc is particularly appreciated for its aromatic finesse, and Malbec for its color and its spicy character.
Characteristics : This traditional Parenchère blend is generally very fleshy, with a very deeply colored robe. Characterized by a good balance between fruit and tannin, it displays distinct red fruit aromas with a long, sustained finish.
Ideal drinking period : from 4 to 7 years
