Of the 28ha of vineyards, 6ha are in the AOP Vacqueyras. The different plots are spread out between Sarrians and Vacqueyras, on two distinctive terroirs producing elegant & structured wines.
55% Grenache - 45% Syrah
The Grenache grapes come from gentle slopes, made of safres and Miocene marls, covered with colluvium, to the south and west of the appellation. The Syrah grapes are from the alluvial terrace of the "Garrigues", covered with pebbles from the Quaternary period, on the western side of the appellation. These natural elements bring balance and finesse of tannins as well as a complex aromatic range going from raspberry to violet through spicy touches of licorice and white pepper.
"Vivid ruby. Expansive red berry liqueur and cherry aromas are complicated by suggestions of Asian spices, incense and garrigue. Sappy and alluringly sweet, offering juicy black raspberry, cola and lavender pastille flavors that deepen with air while maintaining vivacity. Supple, well-knit tannins build slowly on an impressively long, sharply delineated finish that leaves behind suave spicecake and Chambord notes." - Vinous - Nov 2018
