La Belle Angèle was a famous character of the early 20th century. Known for her beauty and joie de vivre, she was the muse of many French impressionist painters.

GRAPE VARIETY GRAPE VARIETY
Cabernet Sauvignon is a relatively late budding and ripening variety. It often gives its best results in well-drained, gravelly, acidic soils with good exposure which allow a maximum ripening of grapes, particularly in temperate areas. In dry areas, it prefers deeper soils that can provide constant nutrition, especially during summer droughts.
Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are harvested at perfect ripeness. In order to obtain a rich and complex wine, the vinification process includes a 6- to 10-day vatting period and a hot prefermentation maceration period.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in vats for about 6 to 8 months.
