Detailed information

Vintage

2018 was atypical in many ways. This vintage required a constant presence from the vineyards to the cellar. After a mild Winter, the wet and rainy Spring gave way to a beautiful Summer, favoring a perfect growth of the grapes. September then ushered in an Indian Summer that proved to be more than ideal for harvests with cool nights and warm & sunny days. The grapes were harvested for a total of 8 weeks at optimal maturity and under ideal climatic conditons. The result is an elegant vintage with a particularly aromatic profile and a superbe balance.

Grape varieties

Grenache noir, Syrah

Terroir

Clayey limestone soils from the north of Vaucluse and Gard. With a Southern French climate renowned for its contrasts, the vineyard benefit from the summer heat and Mistral wind.
