Bel Canto

A short fermentation in order to extract the very best fruit...

A short fermentation of skins from a perfectly ripen harvest, in order to extract the very best fruit. A deep mazarin red with dark purple hint. First mouth offers a supple and velvety wine, with black berries aromas such as blackcurrant. Both supple and meaty, this wine got a soft species finish with black pepper notes.

A wine to be enjoyed straight away for its fruitiness and velvety tannins, but which can also be kept for 2 or 3 years thanks to its good concentration.

To be served 15-16°C, it will perfectly pair game meats, roasted poultry and soft cheese.

Bel canto
This cuvée pays tribute to Ms Geneviève VIX. Born in Nantes in 1879, this opera singer from the Opéra de Paris, acclaimed each time she performed in Graslin Theater in Nantes. She became famous with her performance of Bel Canto, soft, elegant and swingy.
