Bordeaux – Appellation d’Origine Protégée
Grape Variations: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
Winemaking: The harvesting takes place at optimal maturity of plots selected at our partners’ wine growers, under Calvet winemakers’ control. Destemming, long and gentle macerations at a moderated temperature (26-28°C) in order to preserve the roundness and the fruit. Then pump-overs actions are carried out to extract the tannins necessary to the ageing.
Organoleptic characteristics: A lovely ruby colour. A complex nose of red berry fruits (raspberry, black cherry and blackcurrant), spicy aromas (cinnamon, liquorice, clove) and smoked notes (cocoa, caramel).
The wine is round, full-bodied with silky tannins and well balanced. Its finish is long and fruity with notes of gingerbread, caramel and black pepper.
How to appreciate: 16 - 18 °C
Food Pairings: Red meats, whether grilled or with its sauce, as well as with game and soft cheeses. This wine develops its wonderful aromas even further with 2 hours of decanting before drinking.
