Grenache (50%), Syrah (30%), Mourvèdre (20%).
Soil is made of limestone with pebble above. Plots are located in windy and sunny areas.
Winemaking process performed with punching of the cap and with temperature controlled during all the fermentation. After a tasting selection of the best vintage, the blend matures one year in new oak barrels.
Deep red colour with purple reflection, with more time this colour will tend to red garnet. First aromas are vanilla, roasted coffee and cocoa. After swirling, these aromas can evolved to matured red and black fruits. Palate start with a delicate mousse, tannins are melted, aromas tend to be more on matured fruits such as blackcurrant and blackberry. Good evolution in mouth with a peppery and spicy finish. Tannins are very long and reveal a good potential for ageing.
Potential for ageing
This 2011 vintage can be drunk now but has a potential of 4 years more.
