IGP* Pays d'Oc wines are produced in the Languedoc-Roussillon in 4 departments bordering the Mediterranean Sea: the Pyrénées Orientales, Aude, Hérault and Gard. This is one of the largest vineyards in the world, producing a unique and flamboyant range of 56 grape varieties. Each one finds its expression in a variety of soils: clay, limestone, schist and stony, sandy soils, all of which produce dense and complex aromatic notes.
Stony limestone soils selected in the heart of the Pays d’Oc, close to the coast of the department of Hérault (villages of Florensac and Abeilhan).
Fermentation lasted 2 to 3 weeks. After maceration, 75% of the cuvée was placed in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels for 6 months.
