All wines from this estate

Drinking Dates:
2024 to 2030
60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Carignan.
Mainly south-facing, on hillsides, on clay-limestone soils partly covered with rolled pebbles.
Each grape variety was vinified and matured in a different way: traditional vinification, cold pre-fermentation then pressing at half density and end of fermentation in liquid phase, very long fermentation without mechanical extraction, vinification and aging in truncated conical wooden vats, aging in concrete vats etc.
Critic Reviews:
"Aromas of blackberries and spiced plums, with tea leaves, black olive, licorice and wet earth. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and vivid acidity. Tense and meaty with a deep core of black fruit and a spicy edge. Flavorful finish with hints of chocolate and nut shell. Drink or hold." 92/100 (James Suckling)
Game: venison, boar, rabbit

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
