Type of soil
Calcairo-calcaire et argilo-calcaire. Selection in our best plots of syrah (partly in terraces) on the southern slopes of the Pic Saint-loup at 300 meters altitude.
Harvested by hand in separate crates the grapes are carefully selected after being gathered from the vine stock. upon their arrival to the wine cellar the grapes are placed on the sorting table to get rid of the last imperfections. Only the best ones are put into the barrels/vats after being destalked and pressed. the fermentations are temperature controlled. Daily cap-punch- ing allows to reveal the best potential of every grape.
100% of this wine is aged during 18 months in 2 new oak barrels of 225 l produced by the tonnellerie Seguin Moreau which were specially selected for its nest grapes and the softness of its aromas.
The wine has a very deep crimson robe. it is fruity and spicy on the nose.
The attack is full and strong. the wine is generous on the palate with full silky tanins. then the aromas of violet, toasted bread and morello cherries are disclosing. the nal is long and spicy with the powdered tanins left on the palate.
The taste is intensive, elegant and harmonious.
Perfect with eggs with seasonal truffle at Gilles Goujon’s restaurant, a lamb shoulder with fresh porcini mushrooms, beef ribs Black Angus grilled on the wood fire served with a gratin dauphinois with some nutmeg. constance Rouge is also pleasant to finish the festive meal with a dark chocolate cake.
