Soil: Located in a small terrace on the North East slope of the appellation, the rolled pebble and multiple stone soils find their originality in a high proportion of complex clay where the Grenache will express even more wild fruit in the undergrowth and forest spices. This wine is natural and unfiltered, it is possible that a deposit is formed, it is the guarantor of our artisanal and respectful work..

Varieties : 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre

Vinification : Vinified at the Estate, our wines are produced from grapes harvested by hand, partially de-stemmed and vats without so2. Our fairly long vatting (6 to 8 weeks) is carried out at a temperature of 22/30 ° C with gentle extractions and regular work of the lees. Important listening work to conquer all the feline power available in a structure of density of tannin as wide as slightly tight. After a very slow pressing, drop wines and press wines are blended according to vintage, and the 18-month aging process combines both a proportion of barrels (30%) and traditional aging in concrete vats (70%). The vertical energy of this wine leaves us the opportunity, without harming the balance, to incorporate 1 or 2 pieces from another vintage to compose a signature of great complexity.

Tasting : This cuvée is characterized by a very silky and firm structure at the same time. The attack is generous, very centered in its mineral power, but fresh and Burgundian, nothing suggests that the juice is around 15% Vol. Beautiful red color with intense madness reflections, the universe of this wine releases a very melted black liquorice, red and black fruits in slight overripe interspersed with olives, cocoa and truffles. Very fresh in its entirety despite a hyper concentration, the whole appears of a very feminine harmony. The finals are of great length and impressive fluidity. A Châteauneuf du Pape from the most beautiful complex plots, delicious, precise, balanced and distinguished. Serving suggestions: At 15°C . Great wine, great dish. This Châteauneuf-du-Pape will perfectly reveal the hare stew, Rossini tournedos, wild duck and rack of lamb with thyme.

Aging : Can be kept for up to 25 years.
