The 3.5 ha which constitute the totality of this cuvee are harvested manually and brought back to Château La Negly which is 50 kilometres away in a refrigerated truck. Once the harvest is delivered it is conditioned in 7kg crates and will be subjected to severe selection before being vatted in wooden conical vats for around 45 days of vinification. 24 months of ageing is necessary for the correct ripeness of such nectar. The tasting will provide very fine tannins, aromas of very ripe fruit also give off mineral notes with a strong concentration of truffle and light tobacco, for an extraordinary aftertaste. This elixir is the ideal accompaniment for a lièvre (hare) à la royale.
