A cool and rainy Spring delayed and stretched out the flowering period. Harvesting finished lately on the 25th of October. Yields are historically low at 10hl/ha (0.35 tons/acre) with extremely concentrated and remarquably fresh Grenache grapes, ensuring a very good ageing potential.
98% Grenache, 2% Syrah
Selection of 4 parcels of the oldest Grenaches of the Domaine (more than 60 years old) from the area of “Petit Montmirail” (alt. 200m), on sandy marl of the Oligocène period. This Grenache/Terroir combination is unique within the Gigondas appellation.
Hand-harvested. 1-week fermentation with a daily «rack-and-return» followed by a 3-week maceration. 35% of the cuvée is aged 18 months in ½ muids. Bottled at the estate.
1500 bottles produced.
Serve at 14-16°C and open a few hours before drinking.
