As a result of parcel vinification, the best lots are blended to make the first wine with a balance between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The ratio is generally 50-50. Once blended, the first wine is matured in the barrel for 12 months. We renew a third of our barrels every year to obtain a slight oaky effect that supports the fruit aromas. This wine may be enjoyed straight after bottling but will offer even greater pleasure after a few years in the cellar.
This wine is made from our youngest parcels, with a higher percentage of Merlot to produce a fruitier wine that is pleasantly fresh on the palate. It is made to be enjoyed in its early years and, to obtain a light oaky effect in harmony with the fruity base, we mature it in the traditional way in barrels used to age three vintages combined with 12 months’ maturing in tanks.
