IGP Côtes Catalanes
Grenache noir 100%
The vines are cultivated as gobelets, harvested at optimal phenolic maturity in order to guarantee a high quality of tannins and a beautiful elegance of the fruit.

Before the completion of alcoholic fermentation, gentle pressing occurs to retain maximum fruit. Fermentation ends in the liquid phase followed by malolactic fermentation.
Bottling takes place after one year of aging in vats.
