A deep, concentrated red colour. The first impression on the nose is one of complex aromas of jammy red fruit followed by notes of raspberry and prune from the carefully controlled extraction during vinification and from the exceptional ripeness of the grapes. Its full, fat body and its silky tannins contribute to its superb elegance. On the palate, the powerful flavour is backed by a lovely bouquet of aromas mingling notes of very ripe fruit with touches of leather and under-wood.
Harvesting starts only after precise monitoring of the degree of the ripeness and daily tasting of the grapes that are picked by hand and meticulously sorted as soon as they are brought into the cellars. The 2 varieties are vinified separately to extract the best potential from each one. The Carignan is vinified under CO2 maceration for 10 to 15 days whilst a traditional maceration with total destemming is used for the Grenache. Part of the wine benefits from barrel ageing over a period of 12 months.
