Tasting Notes

It took Michel six years of observing and analysing to gain an understanding of this very rich and complex terroir. Grenache grapes come from 70 year old vines, grown on a magnificent plot in the heart of the garrigue scrubland. The Syrah grapes are ripened slowly on vines grown on clayey limestone soil and are also grown on the Maison?s most beautiful schist soil. The extraction of tannins occurs only by pigeage during a long maceration period of minimum 4 weeks. The wine is aged for 18 months: 50% in tank and 50% in barrels. Magnums available.
