Grenache 70%, Mourvèdre 8%, Syrah 7% & 15% white grapes (Vermentino, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc)
The parcels from which the grapes for this cuvée are produced come primarily from clay-rich soils, with the exception of a plot of Grenache, with a richer profile, coming from a pebble-rich hillside vineyard.
The grapes were harvested starting at 3am and until early morning while the temperatures were still cool, and pressed directly upon arriving in the winery. Racking-off of the must after a 48h static settling at 15°C (59°F). A long fermentation took place over 25 days in closed cement vats at a cool temperature of no more than 14°C (57°F). At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine was racked off and left to settle naturally in the autumnal coolness of the cellar.
Bottled on January 15th 2020. 8 552 bottles produced.
Under its pale rosé colour, it is a food-friendly wine with aromas of fresh, red fruits and an invigorating acidity. Ample and round on the palate, it finishes long and voluptuous.
