The vineyards for the Athentique from Pineraie lie on the highest terraces of the lot.
This wine expresses the almost tender notes of Malbec as well as rich, milky fudge notes from ageing in oak. Rural, complex and complete - a delicious wine.
5 hectares of sustainably-managed vines averaging 60 years' age contribute a great deal of character to this hefty wine. Green harvesting and thinning help to lower yields to 30hl/ha. The resulting crop is fermented at 30 degrees and vatted for a month before ageing in oak casks for 18 months, 60 - 70% of which is new oak.
Cassoulet would work extremely well. Also try with stuffed peppers perhaps topped with melting blue cheese or with hearty mushroom based dishes.
