Vinification
Full de-stemming and partial crushing depending on the varietal, parcel and level of ripeness. A proportion of the Syrahs and Cinsaults undergo pre-fermentation maceration at cold temperatures (8°C) for 4 days. The other varietals are vatted and fermentation takes place at temperatures of 22 to 24°C in order to ensure a slow and gentle fermentation for optimum extraction of the aromas and tannins. Extraction is carried out mainly by gentle pumping overs in order to extract the softest tannins possible.
Ageing
12 months in truncated French oak vats followed by 8 months in concrete tanks
Tasting notes
Deep purple hue with blueish tinges. The nose opens up with a combination of black cherry, juniper berry, pepper and sweet spice. After a few swirls in the glass it evolves towards notes of crushed raspberry, cherry, chocolate and subtle notes of dried herbs reminiscent of the scrublands in summer. In its youth this wine is dominated by notes of red and black fruits intertwined with a touch of licorice and pepper. The tannins are well defined yet velvety smooth and persistent.
Food and wine pairing
