An intensely coloured wine in hues of violet. The 2020 vintage has a powerful nose with strawberry, blackberry and fig, but also notes of cocoa that spill over into spice, truffle and a toasted finish. Full-bodied and deliciously mouth filling, this superb wine bursting with blackcurrant, blackberry, and vanilla, with majestic tannins and finely balanced power, is the sunshine of the south in a bottle. Our Syrah is one of the favourites in our Villa Blanche range.
IGP Pays d'Oc
Clay and limestone. The climate is typically Mediterranean, warm and sunny with low rainfall. Winters are mild, summers are hot and usual dry conditions allow the grapes to ripen fully. Vines are ploughed. We do not use weed killer. Pruning is short to regulate the vine's growth and its yields.
Grapes are 50% crushed and fully de-stemmed. Cold maceration during 7 days at 5°C then traditional vinification at 25°C. The vatting period lasts 4 weeks.
30% of the wine is aged for 4 months in oak barrels. The remaining 70% is raised in tanks on fine lees.
