Concours Général Agricole de Paris 2018 Gold Medal
Grape Varieties: Syrah, Grenache & Carignan
Terroir: Parcels on the northern slope of the lesser Luberon range down to the southern end of the Calavon river. Primarily sandy, well-drained soils, with some alluvium pebbles on the lower parcels.
Winemaking: Harvested by hand, completely destemmed and traditional vinification in concrete tanks.
Aged in temperature-controlled stainless tanks, before bottling.
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.
