Ruby red robe. A clean, intense and spicy nose, dominated by red fruits. On the palate, this wine starts in a straightforward, pleasant way, with notes of peat, forest floor and rocky garrigue scrubland, and smooth, well-rounded tannins, ending with a certain finesse. Overall, a harmonious, Mediterranean-style blend that will age.

Terroir

The diversity of Languedoc's terroirs allows us to choose the areas that give optimum expression of our indigenous grape varieties. Our Grenache Noir comes from splendid granite or schist soils in the north-west Roussillon, while our Syrah is in a site sheltered by the Black Mountains, where they give of their best. Our ancient Carignan vines are grown on red ruffes soil and bring a certain freshness to the blend.

Vinification

The grapes are hand-picked, and 30% are partly crushed. Fermentation happens at 25°C for 15 days, with two punch-downs per day. Twice-racked wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation, to preserve the aromatic profile.

Ageing

Aged in concrete tanks for four months.
