Description

The name Vieilles Vignes takes on its full meaning here. Indeed, for this cuvée, the youngest vines are 65 years old, the oldest were planted in 1921. Again, Cabernet Franc is the only grape variety for this cuvée. The old vines produce fewer grapes than their younger colleagues but their deep roots really exploit the terroir, which gives this wine all its authenticity (terroir wines).

TASTING NOTES
The nose opens with notes of ripe fruit, prunes, or blackcurrant. Candied black fruits are present, the tannins support the fruit superbly. The finish is long and smooth

FOOD PAIRING
Pairs well with rib of beef or soft cheeses
