Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vineyard is situated in the commune of Estézargues (Gard). There are two separate parcels, one on sandy soils over a limestone base and the other with a clay topsoil over limestone with a scattering of quartz stones.

Age of vines is 30 years on average

Vinification: Using stainless steel tanks, one third of the grapes are de-stemmed and lightly crushed and the rest are added whole bunch. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out at low temperatures in order to retain fresh fruit aromas and extraction is achieved by daily, gentle pumpovers. Malolactic fermentation and further ageing on fine lees during ten months is done in 228 litre barrelsTasting Note

Tasting Note

Deep purple in colour. Intense aromas of black fruits, lead pencil and Provençal herbs. On the palate it is medium bodied with a fine tannic structure and a fine bead of acidity that helps prolong the flavours.

Food Pairing

Matches well with dishes such as roast lamb, rabbit in a cream and mustard sauce and game such as quail or pigeon.

Ageing potential: 6-7 years
