This barrel selection of the most concentrated barrels of Costers sees an additional 2 months aging in new French Allier barrels for a total of 16 months. We keep separate all of our different vineyard sites grown on costers. If certain barrels of these more ancient estates have a better evolution than others, we decide to produce this wine, not all the years have lucky.

Costers Production: Produced from grapes planted on slopes named in the region “Costers” (dramatically steep land, 45 degrees, where no machine can be used), where the vineyards are practically a hundred years old, a fact that provides a repeatable minerality, concentration and structure in comparison to other zones. The grapes undergo a 48 hour pre-fermentation cold soak followed by temperature controlled fermentation 24° to 26° celsius in small stainless steel vats, and are macerated for a 30 day period. Aged in new French Allier oak barrels of various toasts and coopers for 16 months. This wine was bottles unfiltered.
Limited edition of 950 bottles 75 cl produced.

  Ideal pairings for this wine are honey BBQ chicken and other game poultry such as red wine braised duck leg. Other options include roasted pork shoulder or pumpkin soup.
