Rich purple hue. Cherry and strawberry on the nose which carry through the palate, together with spicy and “garrigue” aromas, typical of the terroir. Well-structured with smooth tannins. The finale is fresh and appetizing (May 2014).

Detailed information


After a dry and cold winter, the rainy spring covered the deficit in water. Strong thermal amplitudes in April and May. The Mistral wind and the rain of end August caused a drop in temperatures and grapes matured slowly. We have waited until the 24th of September to harvest at optimum maturity.
Yield : 27hl/ha

Grape varieties

83% Grenache, 17% Syrah


Grenache in sandy marl of the Miocene period. Syrah from the “Garrigue” zone, on alluvial terraces near the Ouvèze river (Quaternary period). This blend of grape varieties and soils gives structured wines, with typical aromas of spice and “garrigue”.
