Food and wine pairing and service advice
Serve at 18°C with a rack of lamb, game birds or ripened cheeses. This fleshy, harmonious wine, with its elegant structure, can be drunk now and heralds a most promising future.

The harvest is manual and each grape variety is vinified separately. Some of the Syrah is vinified in whole bunches. The maceration period is about 20 to 25 days. At the end of winter, 100% of the wine is transferred to new 225-litre barrels (French oak) for a period of 12 to 16 months in the magnificent Hospitalet cellar (2,000 barrels). The best barrels of each of the grape varieties are selected and blended to produce this cuvée.
