Cuvée La Cômbe
The Cabernet, Syrah and Mourvedre grapes are hand picked, hand sorted and fermented whole in separate 40hl Allier oak tanks. Throughout fermentation the grapes are manually pigeaged (punched down) and ultimately the wine is left on its skins for an extended period of time for the maximum extraction of flavours. Upon pressing, the wine is laid to mature in Allier oak barrels for up to 24 months to impart full-bodied aromas and flavours of ripe blackberries and harmonious tannins with hints of chocolate and Provençal garrigue.
'A black dress, powerful scents of walnuts, prunes and toasted oak: the approach is most engaging. Carried by melted and velvety tannins and a perfectly integrated noble oak, the mouth appears full and warm from the start, round aromas of chocolate and red fruit with eau-de-vie. “Un Vin solaire”.'
