Pre-fermentation cold maceration. Alcoholic fermentation, with very few manipulations (pumping-over, pigeage). Malolactic fermentation partially in barrels.
Spicy, with black fruit aromas, and well-melted oak flavors. The palate is ripe, full and dense, with silky tannins: A Château La Garde very delicate and elegant.
