Syrah, Grenache et Carignan

VINIFICATION AND AGING

Our vines are aged from 10 to 20 years old, they are oriented towards the East, on stony, limestone and clay plots. Grapes taken from the highest quality terroir. A 3 week maceration period. The extraction, emphasized in the heart of maceration becomes softer over the course of alcoholic fermentation for more accuracy. This wine is aged in oak barrels about 40% in barrels of 500 liters for a velvety character and finesse.

TASTING NOTES

The first nose smells slightly acid red fruits and blackcurrant bud. After aerating it, black fruits such as blackcurrants are guessed. The mouth is straight and mineral with silky-grained tannins.  Very ripe black fruits like black cherry and sweet spices like clove go well with the toasty hints from the ageing process. A beautiful, elegant and fresh aftertaste with spices reveals all it ageing potential.

FOOD AND WINE PAIRING

Mediterranean food using olive oil, thyme. Dishes like a duck with olives. Serve between 16 and 18°C.
