This wine reveals a dense dark red colour with purple gleams. The nose is delicate, opening on notes of Mediterranean scrubland herbs, blackcurrant, golden tobacco and underwood.  On the palate, the tannins are discernible but superbly integrated leaving a sensation of round smoothness. Great with roast meats, game and casseroles

Terroir and Vinification

Situated south of Cabrières, in the heart of the Mediterranean scrubland around Roujan, these parcels of Syrah and Grenache Noir vines thrive on limestone hillsides with some slate strata revealed by erosion. The grapes are fermented in whole bunches after two to three days of pre-fermentation maceration at 16°. Fermentation is controlled around 25° to 28° and the cap which is gently punched thanks to a unique pneumatic cap punching system. Part of the blend undergoes malolactic fermentation in 225, 400 and 500 litre barrels made from a selection of oaks during the 11-month ageing period. The final blend is chosen from a combination of barrel and vat wines in order to obtain the balance and complexity desired.
