Tasting note

Varieties

80% grenache, 15% syrah, 5% carignan.

Site

Pebbly terrain with clay-limestone subsoil. These pebbles are particularly good at radiating the warmth built up during the day back to the vines. So they play a part in getting the grapes perfectly ripe. The exceptional draining capacity of these pebbles also allows any surplus water to quickly drain away during heavy spells of rain, which prevents certain diseases from developing.

Yelds

Yields are 30 hectolitres per hectare.

Winemaking

Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Ditto for extraction; warm post-fermentation maceration to add some flesh to this wine, as you'd expect.

Packaging

75cl. Kraft case 6 bottles lying down.
