Overview

A blend of Cot (Malbec) and Cabernet Franc, Les Grands Champs is harvested by hand and fermented by natural yeasts in concrete tanks. Peppery, floral and mineral this cuvée walks a tightrope between its sweet fruit flavors and the structure of its tannin and acidity. It is aged for 10 months in concrete followed by at least a year in bottle before release.
