South-easterly facing, thirty-year-old vines on predominantly clay-limestone soil.
55% Syrah, 45% Grenache.
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 first nose is dominated by notes of fresh tobacco and liquorice, followed by notes of cherries in alcohol, black fruit puree.
The attack is lively and powerful, supported by an elegant tannic structure and carries the aromas of black fruits, cherries in brandy to the spicy finish all in length.
