Vineyard work philosophy: sustainable farming. No herbicides used in our vineyards since 2000, replaced by hilling up/de-hilling in winter and plowing in the spring. Systematic de-budding. Hand-picked only.
Vinification: traditional fermentation in tank for 3/4 weeks.
Aging: 14 to 18 months in French oak barrels (from the Forêt de Troncet). 100% single-wine barrels.
Characteristics: Garnet-colored with purplish reflection. A complex nose with a spicy and floral touch, on a mocha background. With its well-structured mouth, this wine shows a fine balance between the strength of its body and the expression of fruit. It softens its tannins and offers a generous texture.
Pairing: Powerful and rich in mouth, Clos Saint-Denis perfectly matches strong tasting meats (braised or roasted game, wild birds, rib steak or prime rib) and mature cheese.
Serving temperature: 13 to 15°C.
Aging potential: 5 to 15 years.
