Vintage 2017

Grape variety

Syrah, Grenache.

Soil

The vineyards extend over the Les Molières plateau in Montfrin. The soil is made up of smooth pebbles from the ancient course of the Rhône River (Villafranchian). The red clays located at depth ensure there is good resistance to the water stress caused by the Mediterranean climate, making this a very interesting soil.

Harvest

Harvesting takes place at sunrise and when the grapes are at perfect phenolic maturity.

Winemaking

The grapes are fully destemmed and then vinified in concrete tanks, where they will spend between 5 to 7 weeks. The alcoholic fermentation is brought on by the indigenous yeasts. The pumping-over and rack and return operations carried out during the vatting period are determined by aily tastings.

Maturing

In concrete tanks with some of the wine going into stainless steel tanks. 7-10 months.

Alcohol degree

15%
