Tasting

Colour : deep garnet hue.

Nose : intense and generous on the nose with notes of black cherries
and blackberries, and fine spicy touches (white pepper) when
the wine opens up further.

Mouth : full and rich on the palate, lovely freshness on entry with
beautiful red fruit and elegant, silky tannins. Long lingering
finish with slightly smoky notes which will develop a slight
mineral edge over time.

Vintage 2017

Grape variety

Grenache (majority) and Mourvèdre.


Soil

Calcareous sandstone and gravelly clay terrace.

Harvest

The grapes are picked by hand. The grape berries are tasted in the vineyards to ensure that the grapes are fully ripe before they are picked.

Winemaking

Vinification
The de-stemmed grapes are fermented in concrete tanks.
The alcoholic fermentation temperature is controlled at around 25°C to preserve as much varietal aromas as possible. Gentle pumping over operations are carried out on a daily basis to delicately extract aromatic substances, colouring matter and tannins. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is increased to allow the polymerization of the tannins during the maceration phase. Post fermentation maceration lasts about four weeks.

Maturing

Two thirds of the wine is aged in concrete tank for 12 months
and the other third in “demi muid” (600L barrel).

Alcohol degree

14,5%
