Winemaking

The different vines are harvested at the same time and processed all together. Only the Cabernet Sauvignon, which matures later, is fermented separately. Fermentation is carried out over roughly 10 days in steel tanks, acid degradation subsequently takes place in wooden barrels. The wine matures for 18 months in barriques made from French oak. Long maturing in bottles before being sold.

Our tasting note

This cuvée is characterised by its strong and intensive crimson colour and has a multi-faceted bouquet. It is tangy with a light smoky note, fruity with a hint of berries and dried figs. The Kermesse is strong, elegant and harmonious with well integrated tannins, subtle smoked aromas and has a tangy richness. This rarity, rich in finesse and character has large potential for maturing.
