"Smoked clear tar on the finish here, successful but the fruit is secondary to the smoked polish on the attack. An accomplished wine, well constructed. 70% Merlot 30% Cabernet Franc with 18 months in both American and French new oak. Winemaker Céline Lydoire is making a statement. Drink 2018-2028" - Decanter (April 2018)

Winery Notes:
The wine is made with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Average age of the vines is 50 years old (everything is between 40 and 60 years old).

Cé Ma Cuvée is a tribute from Michel Lydoire to his 2 daughters:
Cé is for Céline. She is like the Merlot grape varietal. Pleasant and calm.
Ma is for Marina. She is like the Cabernet Franc grape varietal. Tough and with a lot of character.

The color is deep and inky.
The nose is spicy, fruity and oaky with some nice vanilla and coconut aromas.
The mouthfeel is complex, with ripe red and black fruit flavors. Some spiciness and integrated oak flavors.
