Oeil : Garnet red with purple highlights.

Bouche : Soft and well-balanced on entry. Fine, tight tannins, beautiful mineral tautness derived from the granite. Long-lasting finish with lovely dark berry notes.
Les conseils du Sommelier : Fish in tapenade sauce Small game, lamb Cooked pork meats Soft cheeses, goat's cheese
Cépage(s) : Syrah
Vendanges : By hand in dry, sunny weather.
Sol : Granite terrain created by the wind and geological alteration resulting in restrictive soils with good drainage. Here we find the principal soil and climatic elements of great Saint-Joseph wines. These slow kinetics of maturation give the “Granilites” wine great freshness, minerality, and acidity potential.
Vinification : Temperature controlled fermentation in concrete vats, using indigenous yeasts. 4 weeks maceration was carried out, followed by malo-lactic fermentation in cask.
Elevage : Maturing is carried out in casks for the first 12 months, and is completed in concrete tanks for 6 months.
Degré d’alcool : 14
