Appellation: Cote du Rhone Villages AC
The soils, long sunshine hours and the terraced cultivation of the pebbly soils allow the grapes to ripen well and early. The varieties are harvested (and vinified) separately as they reach their respective optimum maturity. The Grenache provides nerve, body and deep colour, whilst the syrah contributes body and tannin, and the wonderful flavours of violet, cherry and strawberry. The fragrant Cinsault adds elegance. Fermentation with pigeage occurs in tank and the wine is aged 8 months in concrete tanks prior to bottling.
