PRODUCER: Chamonix offers visitors a seamless blend of unspoiled nature, welcoming hospitality, exquisite facilities and a host of culinary and viticultural delights, set amongst a working wine farm and water bottling plant with a history stretching back nearly 350 years.
WINEMAKING: The grapes are berry selected on sorting tables before whole berries are fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks at 28˚C for 3 weeks on the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine of about 14% alcohol matures for 18 months in 225ℓ small French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTE: On release this Cabernet Franc shows a deep ruby mulberry colour and an intense bouquet with scents reminiscent of bellpepper, red berries, spice and cigar box. A wine of ample structure fills the mouth with concentrated fruit.
