The 2020 vintage is characterised by its  precocity and a very beautiful aromatic expression. The harvest started 7 to 10 days earlier than the previous vintage. All the conditions were met for a very promissing vintage: a rainy autumn ensuring an optimal replenishing of the ground water reserves, a mild and dry winter and a summer period marked by temperature spreads between day and night, ideal for fruit and acidity balance. The result: magnificent, healthy grapes, an early ripening and a beautiful maturity for all of the Domaine's appellations.

Vintage
2020

Grape Varieties: 

50% Grenache and 50% Syrah  grown according to organic agriculture standards.

Terroir: 

Grenache and Syrah vineyards grow on two parcels -"Les Roques" and "Fontbonne"- on clay-limestone soils, located in Sarrians and Vacqueyras.

Winemaking: 

Vinification and maturation with no added sulfites, in a « primeur » or « nouveau » style :  very few pump-overs, a short fermentation period and an early racking off of the wine to favour intense fruit flavors.

Tasting notes: 

-Deep, intense violet hue
-Exuberant nose of dark fruit (black cherry, cassis, blackberry) and violets
-Rich, generous and lively on the palate with a vivacious and energetic finish
