Story : In the depth of its soul, connected to nature… the majestic tree turns into « demi-muids » to offer cocoa and vanilla aromas.
Grape varieties : 60% grenache, 40% carignan
Soil : Clay and limestone, plot selection of vines aged 50, on well exposed hillsides facing south.
Climate : Mediterranean
Wine making : The harvests are done when the grapes are on their optimal maturity to extract a maximum of fruit.Cold pre-fermentation during 3 days with temperature control (between 12°C and 14°C) is necessary to get a higher fruit extraction. During the fermentation, 2 to 3 rack and return are done to extract aromas and substance.
Ageing : In 600 L barrels for 18 months
Oenologist Appreciation : Ruby colour, this deep and dark wine reveals a
nose of cocoa with a vanilla note. The palate keeps this greedy and subtly woody character, supported by melted and silky tannins.
« A subtle nose of peony, round and sensual in mouth, very thin tannins and a spicy finish.”
