Fruity, spicy and supple. From our magnificent terroirs in Rasteau.

Appearance : Deep garnet with a purple rim.

Nose : Some elegant black and red fruit and violet flower, liquorice, which evolve with a bit of bottle ageing towards aromas of prune, dates and leather.

Palate : Juicy, generous with some tight and elegant tannins. With time, the wine will develop complex flavours of cherry clafoutis and kirsch.

Advice from the sommelier : Best served slightly chilled, around 15-16°C.

To be paired with Duck confit, Quince & Chestnuts mini Pies or Roasted quails with cherries and balsamic reduction...

Grape varieties : 75 % Grenache, 25% Syrah

Harvest : 100% hand harvest into small baskets.

Terroir : The vines are located on steep slopes on three different types of soils: - Calcareous brown soil; - Skeletal soil on marl; - Red soil and sandstone. Age of the vines: 40-60 years Exposure: South, partly protected from the Mistral. Altitude: 250 meters

Winemaking : The grapes are thoroughly sorted on a sorting table and fully destemmed. The grapes are blended, then they macerate at low temperatures before alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wine then ages in cement and stainless steel vats.

Potential of ageing : Perfect to drink now, but can keep 5 to 7 years.

To know more about the vintages

When young, this wine will give you all the freshness and exuberance of fruit and powerful tannins. With age, this wine will soften, evolving towards softer tannins and aromas of leather, undergrowth and licorice. If you're patient, this wine can wait 10 to 15 years without difficulty.
