Tasting notes
Deep dark colour with purplish tints. Rich nose of red and ripe fruits with vanilla, grilled and spicy notes. The palate is rich and generous with strong but silky tannins. Good length, full-bodied and persistent. Racy and attractive wine. Great ageing potential.

Technical notes
Grown between the Sevre and the Maine on the hillsides of Saint-Fiacre, the 32 acres single vineyard of "Domaine de la Tourmaline" is produced in accordance with sustainable agricultural methods. Rooted in two-mica gneiss soils, the vines are around forty years old. Following a cold static settling of 24 hours, the use of carefully selected yeast allows for a slow fermentation (which lasts 3 weeks between 64-68F). Then, the wine ages on lees for 6 months.
