Description

Grape varieties
Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan.

Terroir
The soil is made up of pebbles deposited by the Rhône river during the Quaternary Period and referred to locally as “Gress”.
The vines develop a very deep rooting system, digging down as far as the layers of clay.

Harvest
The grapes are picked at phenolic maturity and harvested by machine.

Vinification
After destemming, the grapes are fermented in concrete tanks for three to four weeks.
Each grape variety is vinified separately using traditional maceration. After a daily tasting, the wine will either be pumped over or left to rest, in order to gently extract the aromatic components, anthocyanins and tannins.
At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to increase to 30-33°C to assist the polymerization of the tannins

Maturing
6 months in concrete tank
