Grenache noir, Syrah
Clayey limestone soils from the north of Vaucluse and Gard. With a Southern French climate renowned for its contrasts, the vineyard endures the summer heat and Mistral wind.
Each grape variety is vinified individually to develop their own characteristics. The vatting is during 3 or 4 weeks according to grape variety. The wine is racked off and undergoes malolactic fermentation. Different grape varieties are blended. The ageing in vats lasts for 6 months before bottling.
It can be enjoyed now.
