Dark, intense, limpid color, deep garnet. Quite powerful nose dominated by aromas of ripe red fruit. On the palate, very good taste balance between alcohol, acidity, tannins and mellowness. Fleshy, simple and structured wine. Good aromatic persistence, wine that can be drunk but that time will refine.
Vinification – Each plot is harvested separately, and the grapes are de-stemmed. 65-year-old mourvèdre and grenache plots are vinified together, with syrah vinified separately. The wine is then traditionally fermented with native yeasts in underground concrete tanks, with a skin maceration of 15 days. The wine is then blended and aged for one year in concrete tanks. Aging takes place in traditional underground concrete vats for over a year. This type of aging is environmentally friendly, using almost no electricity, and ideal for allowing the wine to develop gracefully. Zero-sulfur vinification is employed and no sulfur is added at bottling.
