AOP Côtes du Roussillon Villages

Grapes

Syrah 70 %
Grenache 30 %

Terroir

The grapes from oldest parcels are picked up at perfect phenolic maturity

Vinification

The grapes are destemmed to be vinified in natural fermentation, punctuated by regular gentle pump overs. After 4 weeks of maceration, the wine is racked into French oak barrels for the malolactic fermentation in wood.
After maturing for 18 months, the wine is rackled three times before bottling to avoid any filtration.
The blend is determined very precisely after fermentation and before aging, to obtain a wine with a very elegant structure and great complexity, typical of the great wines of Roussillon.

Tasting

This a wine with a well-balanced structure between power and elegance.
On this subtle marriage between aromas of black fruits and spices with a hint of liquorice, the wood brings its touch which completes the harmony of the whole.
