After a rainy winter, replenishing mostly the water reserves of the soil, spring was moderately watered and the summer incredibly hot and dry. The vines, although they have suffered from heat and water stress, produced a very good quality grape harvest in normal quantities.
A complex soil with clay and sandstone coloured deep red by the iron oxide, refreshed by the salt air of the Mediterranean Sea. The soil is very well drained which improves the grapes quality.
Grapes varieties :
with 50% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Carignan.
We wait that the grapes reach their maturity, and then we make the harvest by hand and machine. We harvest those red grapes at first to preserve all the freshness of the fruits. While in the cellar, we use a cooling machine to refresh the grapes arriving in the cellar when the outside temperature is too hot to keep the flavour inside the fruits.
The grapes are in concrete tanks in order to macerate during few days (8 to 12) to extract lots of its flavour but not too much tannin. Then they are pressed next clarified and fermented. The temperature is controlled at all the different stages. (around 18°C).
Beautiful clear garnet color. Nose of black fruits, cassis, elderberry and spicy notes, liquor ice and cocoa. Beautiful mouth with ripe tannins well lining the whole palate. Long finish with notes of liquor ice and coffee. A wine to enjoy from now and to keep 3-5 years. To drink with friends and with simple meals (grilled meat, salads...)
