Cuvée de Mortagne is the barrel aged version of Land Van Mortagne. It offers an immense complexity due to the tannins of the wooden barrels and the flavour profile of the wine they once contained.
Our classic Cuvee de Mortagne uses French red wine barrels.
Virgin Oak barrels. This means the barrels previously held no other wine or spirits.

Pours clear, dark brown. Smell is rather mild, fresh oak indeed. Mild maltyness, some tart / funk by the morpheus yeast. Taste is full, sweet, mild funkyness. Less than expected by the scent. Not that tart. Not bad !

Hints of molasses, vanilla. Hints of chocolate. Medium sweet, moderate bitterness. At the same time contrasting but also additional light to moderate sourish notes. Full body, soft carbonation.
