Winemaker Notes:

This wine is born from a partnership between La Maison Dulong, a family of producers and wine traders since 1873, and Michel Rolland, a prestigious international winemaker.

Tasting notes

A lovely ruby color. A complex nose of red berry fruits (raspberry, black cherry, and blackcurrant), spicy aromas (cinnamon, licorice, clove), and smoked notes (cocoa, caramel). The wine is round, full-bodied with silky tannins, and well balanced. Its finish is long and fruity with notes of gingerbread, caramel, and black pepper. 

Vinification: the grapes are harvested when ripe and destemmed. The juice is fermented in a temperature-controlled tank for a period of 10 to 14 days. The ripened tanks are drained daily.

Alcohol content: 13%
