80% Syrah -10% Grenache -10% Mourvèdre
Parcel selection of 4 ha, on Villafranchian quartzitic pebbles deposited by the Rhône, lying on limono-clayey hillsides (Grenache & Mourvèdre) and on red clay soils (Syrah). This terroir produces small grape bunches, well ventilated and guaranteeing perfect sanitary conditions.
Harvested from September 11th 2018. The destemmed grapes were placed directly into tanks without crushing. Maceration
lasted 4 weeks with daily pumping-over to favour the diffusion of the tannins and a gentle concentration. 25% of the cuvée was matured for 10 months in French oak barrels.
Bottled on 25th July 2019.
15 252 bottlles and 240 magnums produced.
