La Rose Sarron
Graves Rouge Cuvée Damien 2011
45% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a dash of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. After the harvest grapes undergo a cold maceration for two days plus extended maceration for 3 long weeks. All the varieties ferment spontaneously with indigenous yeast in tanks. After racking this blend spends 12 months in oak barrels plus extended extra time in the bottle before being released to the market. Our notes: Inky at sight with aromas of graphite and concentrated peppery notes with an infusion of subtle woody notes. Rich and voluminous in the mouth with extracted and intense fruit and coating tannins ending in a long rewarding finish. This is benchmark Graves with finesse at a nice price point. 10.000 bottles yearly produced.
