Cuvée Raphaël is the flagship wine of Parenchère. It was made in memory of the renovator of the estate : Raphaël Gazaniol.
It is produced from a selection of the finest plots and oldest vines, with especially low yields. It is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels (30% new).
A lot of freshness on the nose, with ripe cherry and cassis aromas combined with spices, vanilla and oak scents. In mouth, the wine is harmonious, displaying at the same time power, structure and freshness. The fruit is omnipresent. The tannins are present but very soft.
Ideal tasting dates are from the end of 2020 until 2027. Can be kept until 2030.
