Detailed information


Thanks to the hot summer and plenty of subsoil water, the flowering process enjoyed good conditions. The rain in July delayed the ripening process, but the heat in August and September resulted in homogeneity throughout the vineyard. The grapes boasted a very satisfactory concentration in sugar. The harvest began on the 20th September.

Grape varieties

60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre
