    • Ageing

      The wine is matured for 12 months in oak barrel (1/3 new), then several months in bottles.

    • Tasting Notes

      Les Hauts des Coteaux is a wine issued from 60 years old vines located in our best hillsides with low yields (less than 30hl per hectare) to
      obtain maximum concentration. As the crop has been sorted out and picked
      at high maturity, the wine has a complex structure. Aged in barrels, it
      enhances aromas of vanilla, tasted notes and liquorice. The tannins are very
      smooth and silky and the long finish is spicy and elegant.

    • Tasting Advices

      To enjoy from now or can be kept from 6 to 10 years. Serve at 15°-17°C

    • Food Pairings

      It will match perfectly all kind of meat with sauce such as beef bourguignon, filets of venison with cranberry sauce, or refined cheeses.
