The wines at Comte Armand are made from biodynamic vines, 100% de-stemmed with whole-grape fermentation, 20-30% new oak; the reds are unfined, unfiltered. This red is from 40 year old vines on average. The terroir is Les Argillas, south-facing, upper part of hill, high (30% active) limestone component to the soil. After 5-8 days cold (13-14° C) maceration, the wine receives 5-10 days natural fermentation. 3-15 days post-fermentation maceration. 18-24 months aging in older barrels. Notes of cassis, red berries, leather, wet forest, mushrooms, full body rich and luscious, lovely smooth tannins with fine acidity, long delicious finish.
