Nature wine

Tasting notes : Colour: Deep garnet with a violet rim. Nose: Open and generous, bursting with liquorice, chocolate and olive notes. Palate: Extremely fresh and fruity. The texture is dense and velvety with some abundant but delicate tannins. A pure treat…

Advice from the sommelier : Best served at 17°C. The wine is slightly “perlant” (fizzy) because of the presence of a small quantity of CO2 used to protect the wine from oxidation in absence of added SO2. Therefore using a carafe and moving it energetically just before service to release this CO2 is highly recommended.

Grape varieties : 1/3 Grenache 1/3 Syrah 1/3 Mourvèdre

Harvest : 100% hand harvest into small baskets with thorough sorting of the grapes.

Terroir : Age of the vines: 40 years The vines are located on three different types of soils: - Alpine Diluvian large round stones (famously known as “galets roulés”), giving the wines backbone and structure; - Urgonian limestones, essential for minerality; - Sandy-clay soils from the Miocène, for finesse and elegance. The plurality of these terroirs give the wines both very good balance and complexity. Exposure: Mostly South-West Altitude: 40-100 meters

Winemaking : The Syrah is harvested twice in order to obtain optimum ripeness, followed by Grenache and then Mourvèdre. The Cuvée Peur Bleue is partly made like the red Cuvée Tradition to which are added some entire bunches of grapes that undergo a bit of carbonic maceration. This allows maximum fruit expression in the wine. No sulfur is used, so CO² content is higher in order to protect the wine from oxidation. The wine is aged in stainless steel.

Potential of ageing : 10-15 years.
