Sud de France
Grenache noir 45%, Carignan 25%, Cinsault 15%, Merlot 10%, Syrah 5 %
Destemming. Short skin contact at controlled temperature for the Grenache and Merlot. 6 to 8 days skin contact for the Carignan and Syrah. The grapes are then gently pressed through a pneumatic press (Bucher press). We only use the free-run juice and the first press. This process is geared up to obtain maximum fruit flavour intensity while preserving natural acidity and aroma. Blending is carried out in November; the wine is then aged in stainless steel vats for at least 4 months before being bottled.
Medium garnet with ruby tints.
Intense and fruity nose with aromas of ripe black fruits, blackcurrant and a touch of liquorice.
