Vinification and ageing :
Our “Le Caillou” cuvée is created only from those great vintages that permit late harvesting (one month after phenolic maturity).Late harvest takes place when the bunches consist of more than 50% dehydrated grapes.
Aged in oak barrels.
Tasting notes 2009 vintage :
This cuvée is deliciously rich in glycerol.Its smoothness and aromas of crystallised cherries are an invitation to combine it with a gateau of chocolate fondant
Delicious as an aperitif, with foie-gras, blue cheese, chocolate desserts....Serve at 15°C
