This Cuvée which is exclusively created from the Fetească Neagră variety, is an homage to Count Guy de POIX. He was the founder of S.E.R.V.E. winery, moved to Romania and has dedicated his last years to the rediscovery of great Romanian wines.
The grapes were manually harvested in the first week of October, from the best parcels of Fetească Neagră vines planted in 2003.
The wine-making is traditional. The alcoholic fermentation was made in concrete containers and lasted about 16 days. The secondary malolactic fermentation was made in 225 liters barrels of French and Romanian wood of 1, 2 and 3 years. After a maturation of 8 to 12 months in the barrels, the most valuable wines were selected to take part in Cuvee Guy de POIX. The initial blending was made barrel by barrel, in small lots, leading to the final blending. The conditioning and bottling were made with a very light filtration, not to assault this great wine.
Kept in optimal conditions of temperature, light and humidity, this wine has an ageing potential of at least 12 years.
The wine presents a strong, intense purple red with garnet reflections. Immediately you will feel the complexity of this wine, the special wine-making style succeeded to took out the best aromas and texture from Fetească Neagră grape. Plums, blackberries, rosehips, balsamic notes and chocolate aromas are completed by a princely structure, an astonishing defined body plus velvety tannins.
