Detailed information


After a somewhat damp and wet winter, Spring was particularly dry and warm. The vegetative cycle took a leap forward, hinting at a potentially early harvest. Then Summer arrived with quite a lot of rain and cool temperatures, slowing down the ripening process. Finally, an Indian Summer set in around the end of August/beginning of September, allowing the maturities to progress while maintaining very good acidity.

Harvest took place between the 12th September and 5th October.

A selection of terroirs from the Gard and the Vaucluse:

Gard – rolled stones and clay sub-soil for the Grenaches with no water stress

Vaucluse – limestone and sandstone provide a fresh spicyness to the Syrah and exposed clay soils for the Mourvèdre


Partial destemming and crushing upon arrival at the winery. 3-week maceration with punch-downs and pumping over. 70% of the blend spends 12 months in 275lt oak Laurus barrels (1 and 2-year barrels).
