Dark fruit, earth and smoke

Les Hauts & Les Bas, meaning “the highs and lows”, is a blend of the domaine's different terroirs. It is composed of wine from “the lows” (the banks of the Vienne river) and wine from “the highs” (the plateau of Cravant). The gravels from the river banks give fruit and roundness while the flinty clay from the plateau brings minerality and tension. Part of the blend is aged in a concrete tank to retain a vibrant fruit character while the rest is stays in old oak barrels. Both are blended together in tank after one year and aged for another 3 to 6 months.
