Grape variety: Mourvèdre 46% - Cabernet-Sauvignon 32% - Syrah 22%
Meticulously harvested by hand, 30% of whole bunches are incorporated into the Syrahs at vatting. Mourvèdres and Cabernets are delicately destemmed. 15 to 25 days of maceration are carried out in raw concrete tulip-shaped vats. During fermentation, extraction is carried out by daily pumping over or manual punching of the cap. After racking, the wines are aged for 12 months in 500L French oak barrels followed by an additional 18 months resting in the same concrete tanks. This wine finally bottled without fining or filtration in the spring of 2023. A final 6 months of bottle ageing in our wine cellar has allowed it to blossom and deliver the complexity of its aromas and the depth of its texture.
A beautiful color of purple, intense and luminous. The nose harmoniously mixes power and elegance. It reveals a rich aromatic complexity exhaling fragrances of black fruits but also of spices, characteristic of Mourvèdre. Light fresh and floral notes are revealed in this wine. In the mouth, the finesse perfectly defines this vintage. The attack is elegant and suave, the texture velvety and refined, and the tannins melted because of the long aging in concrete tanks. A beautiful finish, fresh and spiced, reminds us that Mourvèdre is king in Provence.
This delicate wine will be perfect with a rack of lamb with parsley or a roast pork with maple syrup and herbs. It will also sublimate a filet of beef Rossini with truffle butter.
