Syrah - Pays d Oc

Indication géographique protégée

IGP* Pays d'Oc wines are produced in the Languedoc-Roussillon in 4 departments bordering the Mediterranean Sea: the Pyrénées Orientales, Aude, Hérault and Gard.
This is one of the largest vineyards in the world, producing a unique and flamboyant range of 56 grape varieties. Each one finds its expression in a variety of soils: clay, limestone, schist and stony, sandy soils, all of which produce dense and complex aromatic notes.

The cold and rainy spring generated a late and long blooming. The hot summer, followed by occasional storms in September, boosted the maturities with plentiful subsoil water supplies. Between hot and windy episodes, harvest was generous both in quantity and quality.
