The wine, expressing the secrets of the soil
This terroir of strong clay on limestone bedrock produces a powerful, fleshy wine with minerality, freshness and generosity.
The Pavie Macquin grape types, predominately Merlot, have found their perfect home in strong clay soils. The molasses soils combined with asteriated limestone give the wines power and tension, as well as a deep meatiness.
The ancient colluvial soils containing silt add a touch of lightness whilst retaining the mineral tension from the limestone.
The Cabernet Franc is in its rightful place in limestone soils, with bare rock, which warm up quicker, allowing the grape variety to develop all its excellence and give the blend its ‘backbone’ and complexity.
The wine is topped off with 2% old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon.
WIne cellar Insider: From a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, this inky, dark wine opens with black licorice, coffee bean, jammy, black cherry liqueur, blueberry, earth and floral aromas. Powerful, packed and concentrated, the long, opulent, fleshy, jammy dark berry, filled finish is complicated by stone, licorice, chocolate and spice.
