Protected Designation of Origin – 3rd Year of Organic Conversion
Grape Varieties: Grenache, Syrah & Mourvèdre
Terroir: Parcels located on the northern slope of the lesser Luberon range, down to the southern end of the Calavon river. Primarily clay-limestone soils, with some alluvium pebbles.
Winemaking: Harvested by hand, total de-stemming, and traditional vinification in concrete tanks.
Aged in temperature-controlled stainless tanks.
Tasting Notes: Lovely deep dark red robe.
Intense blackcurrant and raspberries bouquet, with notes of spices and liquorice.
In mouth, the attack is powerful. Tannins are rich and mellow in harmony with aromas of ripe fruit and empyreumatic flavours.
