Description

Winemaking techniques

Harvesting by hand. The Syrah is vinified traditionally with a pre-fermentation cold maceration lasting five days. The Grenache is all vinified de-stemmed. Hot maceration lasting a few weeks. Maturation for four months in barrels for each grape variety. Bottled without filtering.

Tasting notes

A beautifully deep ruby red appearance.

Complex and intense on the nose. A beautiful combination of fruity notes (cherry, plum), spices (garrigue, black pepper) and toasted touches (coffee, chocolate).

Wonderfully balanced on the palate with a supple structure, smooth tannins and concentrated aromas. Fruity notes combined with chocolate touches.
