2017 Fleur de Solène

40% Syrah, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Grenache

A superb balanced vintage. Delicate and fruit forward, a vintage ready to drink sooner. Separated by vineyards in different size vessels, we blended it after 14 months and bottled after 16. It has 30% new oak and offers some notes of black fruits.  It is well balanced with great refined tannins.  The optimum cellaring can be up to 9 to 10 years, it could be open a little sooner 2 to 3 years, due to the tanins well refined already.  The ideal temperature to serve ideal will be 58F to 60F. We can decant this wine about 4 to 5 hours before opening.
