Detailed information

Vintage

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

Grape varieties

Grenache noir, Syrah

Terroir

Clay and sedimentary soils in Northern and Southern Gard region (right bank of the Rhone River), and limestone soils from Vaucluse region (left bank of the Rhone River).

Winemaking

Each grape variety is vinified individually to develop its own characteristics. The vatting time lasts 3 to 4 weeks according to grape variety. The wines are then racked off and undergoe malolactic fermentation. The different grape varieties are then blended and aged 6 months in vats before bottling.
