Complex and fine with notes of black fruit (blackberry/blackcurrant) on the nose. The palate is fruity with lovely notes of liquorice and silk tannins, creating a precise and elegant wine with lovely freshness.
The entire AOP (PDO) area nestles in the heart of the Luberon Regional Nature Park. Here, the vines grow in sandy-clay soil at an altitude of 350 metres. The surrounding mountains create a nice range of temperatures which helps concentrate the colouring matter in the grapes, while preserving the wine’s “bite”.
An impressive Rhone vintage, with wines of impeccable balance. High temperatures proved a challenge for growers in the northern Rhone but some rain later in the season allowed for freshness to come through.
Traditional vinification in concrete tanks. The alcoholic fermentation is temperature controlled to preserve the fresh fruit flavours. Short pumping over every day at regular intervals. The maceration lasts about three weeks. The wine is aged for 6 months in concrete vats.
