Ruby-red robe. The nose is pronounced, with a hint of pencil shavings, followed by aromas of garrigue herbs (mint and fennel). On the palate, it is clean and poised, with well-defined tannins, and plenty of spice. A fine, elegant wine with a clear identity.

Vinification

Traditionally vinified. Grapes are destemmed and sorted. The Carignan is vinified without crushing or pressing the grapes; for the Syrah, 30% of the grapes are crushed and then they are vinifed without pumping over (the cap is occasionally moistened); the Grenache is vinifed at 30 °C for one month. Malolactic fermentation occurs with the marc.
