Fruit, fine tannins and good length on the palate make this one of the rare Cahors that can be drunk right from its early years as well as after lengthy aging. The ‘terroir’ here transforms the Malbec grape into a very noble vintage.
Icône wines are made from selected wine stock and hand-picked grapes. Aged for 24 months, only the best barrels are selected and blended to produce just 3,000 bottles a year. They embody the quintessential qualities of Haute-Serre.
Bertrand-Gabriel Vigouroux was one of the first to use integral vinification in 400-litre barrels on rollers, a technique that produces a very fine wine. Woody spices melt into the fruit without dominating the wine.
This second wine benefits from our exceptional ‘terroir’ and the expertise of a high-performance technical team that conceived a blend of Malbec and Merlot matured in vats. Well-built and powerful, the tannins are ripe and velvety.
