Grenache, Syrah & Mourvedre.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre from the different major terroirs of Châteauneuf du Pape : crumbly, sandy soil from the eastern and southern slopes, limestone from the western side facing the Rhône river, red clay from the northern zone and "galets" (large, round quartzite stones) from the upper plateaux sector.
The grapes were hand-picked and partially destemmed before fermentation. Each grape variety was fermented individually and fermentation/maceration lasted for approximately 4 weeks in cement vats. After about 12 months of maturing, the different varieties, which were aged partly in oak and partly in vat, were blended before bottling.
"Ripe, intense nose, dark berry fruits, spices and some smoky meat aromas. Finely textured tannins, strong and powerful but well balanced." DWWA 2021
