Vinification This wine is made according to the method called “Ni Ni”: neither too hot, neither too cold, neither too long, neither too short. It means that the temperature or fermentation is kept between 25°C and 28°C (less than for the other red usually made around 32°C). The time of fermentation is about 14 days (longer than for a light red, but shorter than a traditional Cahors fermented between 18 to 24 days). This is the way to get a red wine with very fruity aromatic characters and soft tannins, “un vin gouleyant” (easy to drink wine).
Bottle 75cl
Volume 13.5%
