Tasting

Colour : bright crimson red with light pink tints.
Nose : notes of laurel and crushed strawberries laced with a few floral notes (lilies).

Sommelier tips

Serving temperature: 16-18°C.

Vintage 2017

Grape variety

Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan.

Soil

The vineyard plots are located in the commune of Montfrin. This wine comes from a soil composed of deep red clay and siliceous pebbles of various sizes brought by the sea some several million years ago.

Harvest

The grapes are picked at perfect maturity in the early hours of the morning to ensure they arrive in a fresh condition for the vinification.

Winemaking

The harvested grapes are totally destemmed and then vinified in concrete tanks. Alcoholic fermentation starts spontaneously with the indigenous yeasts and maceration lasts between 5 and 7 weeks. We taste the wine regularly and carry out pumping-over operations every day to gently extract the aromas and tannins.

Maturing

In concrete tanks on the fine lees. 7-10 months.

Alcohol degree

14,5%
