Deep ruby red in colour. A nose of great intensity with a touch of graphite and liquorice at first evolving to aromas of garrigue and lightly smoky notes. The attack is incisive, frank, with dense tannins. In the mouth, a smokiness with traces of forest floor and ripe fruit intertwines with peaty notes. As always, a wine with a strong identity, all in finesse and elegance.

Traditionally vinified. Grapes are destemmed and sorted. The Carignan is vinified without crushing or pressing the grapes; for the Syrah, 50% 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. The Mourvedre is vinified at 30° during 15 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs with the marc.
