Grape varieties

60% Grenache, 40% Syrah


Caught between the Aygue River to the North and the Ouvèze River to the South, the soil has a deep alluvial and silty structure, while the surface is covered with large, round stones formed by glacial melt. This terroir produces generous & powerful wines.


Delicate pumping-over during brief pre-fermentation soak. 4 “délestages” (rack-andreturn) during the active fermentation period, followed by a single racking each day. 24-day post-fermentation soak. Separation of the free-run and pressed wine, malolactic fermentation followed by partial blending back of the press wine. The Syrah spent 6 months in barrel (mix 2 and 3-year barrels) and then blended with the vat-aged Grenache.
