The Grenache grapes come from the sector of "La Crau", a large Quaternary terrace covered with large pebble stones, giving the wine structure and body.
The Syrah grapes are grown on clay-limestone soils from the Cretaceous period, bringing great elegance and finesse to the wine.

"Slightly taut still, focused by a frame of singed juniper that holds sway over the core of crushed plum, cherry and blackberry notes. Keeps a sleek, racy feel through the finish, with anise, black tea and graphite elements checking in." Wine Spectator - June 15, 2018
