Tasting Note: Expressive, with fruit jam aromas and spicy nuances. Intense structure and appealing suggestion of sweet fruit.
Food Matching: Pair with a grilled rib of beef, a game in sauce or a refined cheese.
Vineyard: Plateau of limestone rock (éclats calcaires) 320 m above sea level, split by a natural gap 100 m deep and 150 m wide. Selection of the stoniest area for a spicy, well-structured style. Warm, dry Mediterranean climate, tempered by altitude and the continental influence of the Larzac.
Vinification: Manual harvesting with sorting on the vine. Destemming. Fermentation in temperature-controlled coated concrete vats with daily pump-over. Long maceration period for Syrah grapes (15-20 days). Malolactic fermentation.
