    Corinne captures the essence of the fruit in her first cuvée of red by delicate extraction (“the only extraction is done on the vine!”) and cuve ageing.  The fruit is ripe, natural, with dark cherry, fruits of the forest and hints of spice and dark chocolate.  It has a lovely play on the palate with great freshness and has very finely tuned, ripe tannins on the finish.  For drinking now  to 2018.

    CDT’s top wine comes from 60 year old vines, and has been aged for 16 months in one year old barrels from Pontet-Canet before bottling without fining or filtration.  Very luscious, ripe black fruits here with a touch of liquorice and vanilla, and fine, well integrated tannins. For drinking now to 2019.

    Corinne is fortunate to have 3 hectares of 60 year old white grape varieties.  The vines are located atop a hill and the soil is full of flint.  Fermentation rumbles on gently over a couple of months (malolactic fermentation is allowed) in a mix of cuve and cement eggs.  A very elegant wine of real finesse (and a lower level of sulphur in 2012 really suits), with a relatively high proportion of muscadelle playing its part, providing gentle, floral aromas and flavours. As it ages it takes on delicious apricot, honey and hay notes. For drinking now to 2018.
