The 2006 Cérvoles Estrats is made with Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Tempranillo 20% and Grenache 15 %
Aging: Garnacha and Tempranillo in new Allier barrels of French oak (MT+) of the Radoux cooperage (Radoux Blend is a selection of French extra-fine grain oaks). Tronçais oak of the Taransaud cooperage for the Cabernet Sauvignon. During 18 months and with periodic bâtonnage in the first 5 months to contribute to voluptuousness and volume of the coupage.
Tasting: Ruby robe with violates tones. Very dense and tinted tears. Of attractive and intense aroma, with parade of Cérvoles tipicity (flower of lavender, thyme, Rosemarie, dead leaves of evergreen oak). In background we discovered slight vanillas, notes of toasting, memories of cedar, and finally explosion of wild berries (jam of raspberry, bilberry), fresh cherry pillory. Sweet-toothed palate, simultaneously greasy and imposing. Immensely great mature tannin concentration,integrated during the passage by mouth. Sweet ending, with comfiture memories of mocha and certain mineral notes. Elegant and pleasant persistence in mouth of this great wine.
