Of the 27 ha (67 acres) of vineyards, 6ha (17 acres) are in the AOP Vacqueyras. The different plots are spread out between Sarrians and Vacqueyras, on two distinctive terroirs producing elegant & structured wines.
The Grenache grapes come from gentle slopes, made of safres and Miocene marls, covered with colluvium, to the south and west of the appellation. The Syrah grapes are from the alluvial terrace of the "Garrigues", covered with pebbles from the Quaternary period, on the western side of the appellation. These natural elements bring balance and finesse of tannins as well as a complex aromatic range going from raspberry to violet through spicy touches of licorice and white pepper.
ABV : 15% alc.
