Clay-limestone soils, vines with an average age of 60 years. Aged for 24 months in ten-year-old oak barrels. Vinification takes place in wooded truncated vats. The wines are unfiltered and unfined.
‘Le Sylphe’ is an aptly chosen name for this wine — translated into English, it me means a slender, graceful woman. This Le Sylphe cuvée, made from Cabernet Franc without blending with other grape varieties. A powerful, deep dark red wine with a lot of expression and very high tannin quality. It is beyond alive here with classic, sweet spices and black pepper. There is a silky, tobacco quality that combines well with all of the explosive black fruit.
