Located in the commune of St Jean de Muzols in an area known as “Roche Courbe”, the vines we selected are Syrah and Serine (massal selection of original Syrah). They produce a fruity and spicy wine with a long and aromatic finish.
Parcels selected partly on the village of Saint Jean de Muzols (South exposure, granitic soils , 200m high) and partly on “Roche Courbe” in the village of Malleval (South-West exposure, biotite granite soils, 250/300m high).
Manually harvested grapes undergo alcoholic fermentation in vats. The malolactic fermentation process is completed in new 275-litre oak Laurus barrels. Ageing on fine lees over a period of 15 months.
