Wine description

Something new for all merlot lovers: selected old vineyards, gorgeus fruitness, lovely aromas, enviable elegancy, extremely precision

With food

This excellent wine may be combined with dishes of modern haute cuisine as well as with the traditional ones. Serve it with a wide variety of meat dishes – venison and all types of red meat. It also goes great with mature, slightly spiced sheep milk cheese.

Aging

Even today the wine shows a wide variety of scent and an elegant structure of its body. With its maturing in the bottle the wine will only grow on softness and elegance. Therefore we can leave it ageing for fifteen years or longer.

Cru Selection

Cru Selection wines have a very rich colour, an extraordinary beautiful body, which reflects the characteristic mineral note. These non-filtered wines are also extremely persistent.
