Vintage 2016

Grape variety

Syrah.

Soil

Part of the vineyard is located on decomposing granite, known locally as “gore”, the other is on alluvial clay-limestone soil. This kind of soil produces powerful, meaty wines with good tannin. This type of granite also gives the wine power and a nice taut acidity.

Harvest

The grapes are entirely hand-harvested.

Winemaking

Vinification is carried out in the traditional way, the harvest is destemmed.
Fermentation lasts about 10 days and is followed by an around three-week maceration.

Maturing

After vinification, the ageing process starts and lasts 14-16 months. 80% of the wine goes into oak barrels (100% French). The remaining 20% are aged in concrete tanks, which preserves the fruit and minerality expressed on these granitic soils.

Alcohol degree
