From a tiny plot of .36 ha planted in 1975, this a Massal selection with lots of millerandage and low yield. It is farmed using organic methods with 100% whole cluster, indigenous yeast fermentation in concrete tanks with gentle maceration. 18 months' aging in barrel (30% new oak), small amount of SO2 added only at bottling. The nose is intense with red cherry, liquorice and blackberry and herbaceous notes. The palate is round with the acid creating some nervous tension. Tannins are present but very elegant. A superb wine.
