Clau de Nell Cuvée Violette 2012

Clau de Nell Cuvée Violette is a seductive and aromatic style of red wine that comes from low yielding 60 year-old-vines. A blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, the wine is made using full biodynamic practices and after 18 months maturation in Burgundy casks the wine is bottled without filtration or fining on a 'fruit day'.
