A wine with an intense nose of ripe blackcurrants and raspberries. In the palate it has a lot of fatness and strength with spicy aromas developing into leather.
The soil for these vines is composed of large smooth pebble terrace (from the old Rhone riverbed) with sandy red clay. The crop is hand-harvested and sorted out when maturity is at its optimum level.
The wine is vinified in concrete tanks. Vatting lasts between 3 and 4 weeks with a fermenting temperature which does not exceed 32 degrees. This wine is aged in vats and in big wooden casks for 15 - 18 months.
