The Côte Brune displays a dark, elegant character that marries wonderfully well with the floral notes of the Côte Blonde. All this over a very silky tannic weave and lovely density.
Grape variety/varieties: Syrah. The average age of the vines (more than 60 years old) is a guarantee of an exceptional quality product.
Harvest: Hand-harvesting at maturity.
Soil: Chlorite and ferruginous mica-schists blending in loess depressions and earth veins. The plot producing this wine is located on the border of the “Côte Blonde”.
Vinification: The grapes are entirely destemmed and vinified in concrete tank. Daily pumping over ensure a good extraction of the colour and tannins. The temperature of vinification does not exceed 32°C. Only the free-run juice is used.
Ageing: Entirely aged in oak casks (225 liters), with a proportion of new ones between 14 and 18 months.
Alcohol content: 14
