A gleaming, brilliant wine with purple-red highlights. The nose opens on intense notes of fruit with blackcurrant and black fruit. The aromatic palette amplifies in the mouth to embrace white peach, aniseed, mint and heather. The tannins are refined and elegant but assertive. A beautifully balanced wine that promises excellent ageing potential.
This still unjustly ignored Cru that neighbours the famous Terrasses du Larzac deserves all our attention.

Clay-limestone; red and white clay.
Traditional vinification in concrete vats. The cap is punched down twice a day at the beginning of the fermentation process and the marc is then soaked on a daily basis towards the end of the vatting period. The vatting period lasts 25 days. The wine is racked and malolactic fermentation takes place in the vats.
20 months in vats for 90% of the wine and 10% in barrels (previously used for one white wine vintage) for 6 months.
