Grape Varieties : Syrah 50%, Grenache 50% Land: Southern exposition, clay-limestone soil.
Culture : Conversion to organic vineyard culture, we work on our vineyards with no fertiliser or insecticides. Manual wine harvests. Yield: 38 hl/ha.

At the start of December the two grape varieties are brought together. Throughout the wine-making process and the maintenance, we limit the use of sulphites.
Description : Beautiful garnet colour purple hues. Nose dominated by small red berries (blackcurrants, redcurrants). The fruits are very present on the palate as well as liquorice, vanilla and spicy flavours. Rich and smooth, a wine vintage full of nuances and a long finish.
