Grape variety/varieties:Grenache, Syrah

HarvestThe grapes are picked at phenolic maturity and harvested by machine, early in the morning.
SoilGravelly deposits (calcareous platelets) over a clay matrix.The parcels located on the edge of the garrigue scrubland benefit from an excellent south-facing exposure. These plots will give this blend its power and structure. Loess, a deep well-draining soil providing a constant supply of water, without excess, the vine’s vegetative cycle. The Syrah on this type of soil will lend our blend fruit and suppleness.

VinificationAfter de-stemming, the grapes are vinified in concrete tanks for four weeks. At the start of fermentation, we carry out a rack and return operation, followed by staggered pumping over operations each day to gently extract the aromatic substances, anthocyanins and tannins. The temperature of the alcoholic fermentation is checked and regulated. At the very end of the alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to rise to around 30°C to help the polymerization of the tannins.

Ageing: 5 months in concrete tank

Alcohol content: 15
