The grapes come from a selection of the best vines of Oppède-le-Vieux, The grape harvest is totally destemmed, gently crushed and then placed in stainless-steel vats for a 3-to-4-week cold maceration, before fermentation with regular pumping over and devatting. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged in stainless steel vats, before ageing and bottling.
A steady robe of dense purple.
The nose opens on notes of dark red fruit.
The nose and palate are beautifully coherent, dark berries are dominant with notes of leather and liquorice and light hint of pepper: altogether balanced with mellow tannins.
