The grapes, picked at perfect maturity, are de-stemmed and lightly crushed. The maceration, which lasts between 15 days and 3 weeks, is done by controlling the temperatures. The draining is decided when the balance of the wine is achieved: nice fruit flavours wrapped into sweet tannins. The wine is then matured in oak barrels for 6 to 12 months.
Merlot and cabernet sauvignon
Premius Rouge has a lovely raspberry colour with purple shimmers, followed by a fine, powerful and fruity association of berry, strawberry and roasting (mocha, toasted bread). The maturity of the grape is emphasized by a lovely balance and a fresh red fruits touch. The wooded notes are perfectly melted, bringing complexity to the long finish, by grilled and toasted accents.
Ideal as an aperitif and with red meat or cheese.
