80% Syrah, 20% Grenache
comes from the best grapevines of our estate.
the soil is argillaceous limestone, partially terraced vines at an average altitude of 300m.
Harvested early in the morning at the coolest time of day, around 5am. Direct pressing after a short period of maceration of the skins. the grape must is chilled (at around 8°c) for 36 hours to allow for settling. After selection of the clari ed juices, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel vats under controlled temperatures (90%) and in french oak barrels (10%) with batonnage (gentle stirring).
the new french oak barrels come exclusively from the Bernard cooperage, a family run business settled in the heart of the charentes region of france since 1936. the ageing in the barrels lasts 4 months and brings complex aromas and lovely strength.
