Classic vinification process with long maceration and partly ageing in oak. An intense nose of plum and blackcurrant, with delicate toasty notes; the palate is silky and long with plenty of red fruit and hints of vanilla.
Background about New Wine Classifications<
Vin de France is the lowest level of three in the overhauled wine classification system of France, under the intermediate category Indication Géographique Protégée (IGP) and the highest category Appellation d'Origine Protégée (AOP). Unlike Vin de France, IGP and AOP wines indicate the wine's geographical origin within France. This system of three levels replaces the former system of four levels - Vin de Table, Vin de Pays, Vin Délimité de Qualité Supérieure (VDQS), Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) - and will be fully introduced by 2012.
