Aged in tank
This traditional blend benefits from the various components each variety and terroir bring to the table: Merlot grown in clay adds richness and supple tannins, Cabernet Sauvignon grown in hot, gravelly soil brings structure and tannin for ageing, and Cabernet Franc contributes fruitiness and finesse. The combination of these elements creates a blanced and lively cuvee begging for grilled meats, chicken and pork.
