Wine maker notes - Geography The pure schist soil is typical of the appellation, and the grape varieties produce low yields, ensuring quality and concentrated aromas. Located on the heights of the appellation at 250m altitude, the south facing plots enjoy very low humidity. Vineyard The major grape variety is Grenache (50 %), while Syrah with 20% and Mourvedre with 30% bring complexity to the strength and roundness of Grenache. The Syrah grape is pruned in Cordon de Royat whereas Grenache and Carignan are Gobelet pruned. The whole vineyard is organically grown. Food pairing - This wine is perfect with grilled meat, meat in sauce and of course cheese. Serving temperature: 18°C.
