Detailed information

Vintage

A 2022 vintage with considerable sunshine in the Spring and Summer, similar to 2003. These conditions caused the vines to develop and ripen at a more accelerated pace. Flowering however took place relatively well and in good conditions. Welcome August rains stabilized the situation and allowed the harvest to take place between mid-August and mid-October. The result, from this atypical vintage, ended up producing wines with a solid structure and lovely deep fruit.

Grape varieties

Grenache noir, Syrah

Terroir

The vineyards are planted on soils that are rare in the Rhône Valley: limestone deposits, marl from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, sand and sandstone from the Tertiary era.

Winemaking
