Each variety is harvested manually and separately. Vinification is completed in truncated oak barrels for the reductive grapes (Mourvèdre and Syrah) and in traditional tiled cement tanks for the oxidative grapes (such as Grenache). After the malolactic fermentations, the family blends the different varieties and then the wine ages in oak Foudres for a year before bottling.
Dark and deep ruby with purple undertones. Very rich nose with ripe black fruit, cherry, fig and slightly smoky. Round and powerful mouth, great balance between the tannins and the body, with notes of red fruit.
