  • Vineyard Profile

    • Soil: Stony clay-limestone terrain (with lots of white rolled pebbles) on a hillside particularly well exposed. It is characterized by small, highly concentrated clusters.
  • Vintage Report

    • The winter was mild, and the spring was dry and cool. Summer will have beautiful, warm days but not scorching, with some cool nights. The weather was great until the harvest, making it possible to pick grapes when they were at their best. The vintage is expected to be great.

  • Vinification

    • These sun-kissed grapes contain more than 260g of natural sugar per liter before the mutage which was carried out “on grain”, followed by contact with the skins to fix the magnificent purple color and tannins.

    • Aging: 2 years in oak barrels.
  • Technical Information

    • Varietal Composition: 100% Grenache Noir
    • Alcohol: 14.5%
  • Tasting Notes

    • The wine has a combination of black and red fruits that has a balanced taste with a mix of spices and sweetness. The finish is quite long-lasting.

    • Serving Suggestions: Nut Pie
