A new vat room with small volumes of 40 to 60 hectolitres allowed extension of the selection work started in the vineyard. Precision viticulture was carried out through, among others, an approach to the vigour of the vine. The 2014 blend was very strongly influenced by Cabernet Sauvignon (64%).

The initial wood flavors in this wine rapidly give way to rich fruit. Spice and black-plum flavors are built by a firmly tannic superstructure. The aftertaste brings out the acidity. This wine should develop well over the long term. Drink from 2023.

Pure and expressive, featuring a lovely beam of cassis gilded with light lilac, wet pebble and tobacco notes that should emerge more with cellaring. Shows textbook typicity for the AOC. Best from 2018 through 2028. 12,500 cases made.
