Wine variety : 100% Syrah
The Land : Clay and rocky terraces.
Vinification : Vendanges manuelles en caisses, égrappage complet au-dessus de la cuve, arrosages fréquents du « chapeau*», fermentation et macération pendant un mois.
Maturing of the wines : During 24 months in casks made from Lithuanian oak.
Observations : In the begining of the maturing process this wine abandons its characteristic mediterranean flavors, and resembles more a grand cru from the North of Rhone. The well melted tannins stay in the background to assure the longevity and the finesse of the texture. The aromas of mature fruit mix well with the worn path of an afternoon walk through the forest.
A the table : Open the bottle and air one or two hours before serving. This wine needs strong flavored acompaniements to pair well with the complexity of the wine. It would go well with a roasted duck or any game fowl simply roasted, try to avoid heavy sauces.
