Description

A complex and balanced Californian red wine

The estate

Qualified in oenology, Stephan Asseo began his winemaking career in the 1980s in Burgundy and at family vineyards in Bordeaux. After having worked in Bordeaux viticulture for 17 years, he decided to venture into new horizons and found his personal paradise in the Paso Robles region (halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles) in California.

It is from these untapped lands that an estate emerged out of nowhere, which he named L’Aventure.

 The vineyard

Estate Cuvée 2017 is a Californian wine that stems from a vineyard on steep hillsides which provide a terroir of exceptional quality, of which the mosaic of soils and excellent drainage are perfect conditions to advance the development of the ripening of the grapes.

Winemaking and ageing

The yields were very limited (between 1.5 and 2 tonnes per acre). Malolactic fermentation was carried out in barrels. This Paso Robles wine benefited from a 15-month ageing period in French oak barrels (of which 90% were new and 10% were one year old).

Blend

Syrah (49%),
Cabernet sauvignon (30%),
Petit verdot (21%)
