Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, the pure expression of its appellation.

Tasting notes : The wine is concentrated, showing some generous strawberry and raspberry notes and a subtle hint of liquorice. The tannins are velvety and smooth.

Advice from the sommelier : Best served at 18°C. To be paired with Provencal Beef stew (« Daube provençale ») !! 

Grape varieties : 1/3 grenache, 1/3 Syrah, 1/3 Mourvèdre

Harvest : 100% hand harvest with thorough sorting upon arrival at the winery.

Terroir : The vines come from the three best plots of the estates. They are located on the sandy filtering soils on the slopes at the back of the Mount Génies, benefiting from perfect exposure. This gives wines with stunning concentration but with elegance and very silky tannins. Age of the vines: 60-90 years Yield: 28 hl/ha

Winemaking : 100% hand harvest with thorough sorting upon arrival at the winery. Destemming of the grapes. The harvest is blended before fermentation, process used by only very few estates nowadays, allowing each grape variety to express its potential better than if fermented alone. The cap is punched down regularly. Maceration lasts 12 to 18 days, at controlled temperatures. The wine ages in French oak barrels of varying age (no new oak), but always chosen for being very lightly burnt.

Potential of ageing : Generous and easily approachable, ready to drink but can keep 7 to 8 years.
