Cuvée ‘Prélude’ – 2017 – vin de France
From the vine to the winery
Manually harvested, the different grape varieties were vinified separately, stored in barrels for 8 months and assembled just before being bottled in June 2018.
During the fermentations and ageing, all interventions were limited to their minimum and the wine was carefully protected from any contact with oxygen. The wine was not filtered thus there can be a small amount of deposit despite its young age.
Deep red and purple colour with fruity aromas. The wine is full-bodied with notes of black cherries and black currant and a hint of chocolate. Spiciness is high thanks to Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot grapes bring a very smooth and fresh finish.
