This late-ripening variety is carefully fermented on the skins, aged for one year in stainless steel tanks, and then aged an additional year in both French and American oak barrels. 1,750 cases produced.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION: Harvested September 30, 2010; Alcohol - 13%; Residual Sugar - 0.2%
TASTING INFORMATION: Vibrant aromas and flavors of toffee, black currant and cherry compote set off by plenty of smoky, toasty oak and a hint of black pepper. Medium-bodied with soft tannins and a lingering finish. Chambourcin perfectly complements grilled meats, pastas in rich red sauces and ripe cheeses such as Brie or Camembert.
