Vinification:

    • After careful crushing and destemming, the must passes to our vats for maceration and fermentation.
    • These processes take about one month at carefully controlled temperatures with both daily pumping over and hand plunging of the cap.
    • The resultant product is then pressed, and the free-run juice is separated from the press juice in order to be aged separately.
    • Malolactic fermentation follows shortly after.
    • 60% of the wine for Réserve Secrète is aged in new oak barrels for 12 months.

    • Powerful, elegant and refined wine built for the long guard.
    • Intense nose of blackberry, blackcurrant, worn by empyreumatic notes.
    • The dense mouth of this wine blends beautifully notes of tan, cherry cherry cedar and continues with an intense and persistent finish.
