Largely Merlot, with some unidentified grapes that may be Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyards & Viticulture
From ungrafted pre-Phylloxera vines dating back to around 1850, making them somewhere close to 170 years old.
Harvest & Vinification
Aged in 50% new oak barrels and 50% one year old, unfined, and only lightly filtered, bottled under azote. No SO2 until CO2 starts to dissipate about three months after malolactic fermentation, then another small dose at bottling.
