Located in the commune of Saint Jean de Muzols, in an area known as “Roche Courbe”, the vines we have selected grow in granitic soils that enjoy a south/south-westerly exposure at 200 metres of altitude, producing fruity and spicy wines.


Manually harvested grapes first underwent alcoholic fermentation in a vat. The malolactic fermentation process was completed in new 275-litre oak Laurus barrels. Elevage on fine lees over a period of 11 months with blending.
