Tasting Note:

Madame Gasqueton, the dynamic owner has never experienced such great Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up 65% of the assemblage. The harvest was completed with no stops between Merlot and Cabernet from the 1st – 9th October. 50% élevage in new oak and 25% malolactic fermentation in barrel.
