Description

Superb, brilliant, pale pinkish colour. Highly aromatic, with delicate notes of red fruit, a complex nose of raspberry, white-fleshed fruit, peach, and white blossoms. The terrior shines thorugh on the palate, giving an impression of freshness and balance. Lovely length and a mineral, saline finish with character.

The soil is composed of calcareous clay and the vineyards are terraced in part with an average alititude of 250 metres. The climate is cool for the region with considerable diurnal/nocturnal temperature difference, which allows these wines to preserve perfect balance.

The grapes are mostly harvested in the morning and are then destemmed. The Cinsault and Granche grapes are pressed directly while the Syrah grapes are vinified according to the saignée method. Vinification is conducted in stainless steel vats and fermentations take place at low temperatures to preserve the wines' aromatic freshness, after which the wines are aged for 3 months on fine lees and gently stirred.

Food Pairing: Ideal as an aperitif, or as an accompaniment to seafood hors d'oeuvres, or raw vegetables or fish prepared with olive oil.
