Quick Overview

Jancis Robinson (Jul 13) 17/20: Smells of ripe red fruit. Bright acidity crackling over a mouthful of red berries and raspberry. Youthful tannins, sleek with a gentle grip. Super fresh. Lightest brush of herbs. Beautifully balanced, a real purity of fruit and line, and very elegant.


Decanter Bronze Medal.

Traditional vinification: Carignan is vinified by semi-carbonic maceration which consists of destemming without crushing the grapes. The Grenache and the Syrah are punched down. The Grenache ferments up to 30°C. and the Syrah temperature is kept at 25°C.
