There is a smooth, polished feel to this balanced wine. Wood and blackberry flavors come together with mint and thyme to make a ready-to-drink wine. The tannins, while firm, are well integrated.
Clos La Coutale consists of Malbec and Merlot. The average yield of 45hl allows a good maturity and a regular quality over the years. The vinification is done in thermoregulated vats, regular punching down allows a good extraction of aromas and fruit. Clos La Coutale is then matured in barrels and wooden casks for one year in order to obtain a good balance between tannins and fruit.
