Terroir

Terroir of limestone clay garrigue and 40 % red ferrous clay. The earth is well draining and aerated due to its stony composition. The vines are planted at 100 metres altitude where the regular winds maintain the good sanitary condition of the vineyard.

Vinification

The grapes are destemmed and sorted before being fermented at around 25°C, with 10 minutes pumping over per day. The cap is moistened every day at the end of maceration. Vatting last 10 days, with malolactic fermentation after cold settling in cement tanks.

 

Taste notes

The palate is fresh, with fine, discreet and well-integrated tannins. 2017 offers us a slightly more intense wine than in 2016, whilst maintaining its delicious, easy-drinking and highly original quality.
