Detailed information

Vintage

In 2022, the weather conditions were particularly hot and dry. These warm, dry conditions began in early May and resulted in early bud-break and vegetal growth. Practically no rain fell right up to mid-August, suggesting an early harvest. Then, from the 15th of August until the 5th of September, it rained one third of annual rainfall! Following a pause of several days to allow the vines to recover, the harvest finally took place under ideal conditions and resulted in a high-quality vintage with ripe and generous fruit.

Grape varieties

Syrah

Terroir

Parcel selection of 2 ha, on Villafranchian quartzitic pebbles deposited by the Rhône, lying on red clay soils (Syrah). This terroir produces small grape bunches, well ventilated and guaranteeing perfect sanitary conditions. Age of the vines: 24 years on average.

Winemaking

Harvested from August 25th to September 2nd 2022. The destemmed grapes were placed directly into tanks without crushing.
Maceration lasted 4 to 5 weeks with daily pumping-over to favour the diffusion of the tannins and a gentle concentration.
70% of the cuvée was matured for 9 months in French oak barrels from 2 to 4 wines. Bottled on 20th July 2023. 7 876 bottles and 391 magnums produced. Vegan friendly.
