Detailed information


After a mild autumn and contrasted winter, the first flowers appeared in mid-May in excellent conditions. July proved rather cool, whereas August and September were rather hot. Good level of ripeness.

Grape varieties



Vines selected in the Tain l’Hermitage sector, in an area known as “La Baume” in the heart of the Appellation’s production site. Soils are alluvial terraces covered with small pebbles with a south-westerly / south-easterly aspect, and clayey soils with a northerly/southerly aspect. The combination of these two terroirs produces a fine balance between strength and fruitiness.


Manual harvest. After alcoholic fermentation in a vat, the wines underwent malolactic fermentation in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels. Elevage on fine lees over a period of 13 months (new barrels).
