Vintage 2017

Grape variety

Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan.

Soil

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.

Winemaking

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.

Alcohol degree

14%
