Located in the commune of Saint Jean de Muzols, in an area known as “Roche Courbe”, the vines we have selected grow in granitic soils that enjoy a south/south-westerly exposure at 200 metres of altitude, producing fruity and spicy wines.
Manually harvested grapes first underwent alcoholic fermentation in a vat. The malolactic fermentation process was completed in new 275-litre oak Laurus barrels. Elevage on fine lees over a period of 16 months.
Production: 3,900 bottles

Bright and shiny red colour. After the first nose of ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberries) come spicy and peppery notes. To the palate, tannins are already muted, and can only improve with age. The finish is fresh-tasting, spicy and fruity (18th July 2014).
