The fruit of a plot of vines known as ‘Les Rocs’, planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Barthélemy undergoes a long vinification process with no added substances. Technical interventions optimised with reference to the lunar calendar and with no added sulphur dioxide or other chemical products. They are then bottled without filtration.
Tasting notes: Côtes de Francs Barthelemy opens with round and soft aromas of black fruits with lovely hints of spices and liquorice. Velvety yet fresh attack followed by a lovely combination of acidity, structure and fruit notes. Very long and clean finish.
Food Pairing Suggestion: Red meats, Game, Hard cheeses, Mushroom based dishes, tomato based dishes
Grape Varieties: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
