A harvest « in green » is performed in Spring for a better bunch selection. Harvesting is manual for a yield of 45 Hl/ha. The harvest is totally destemmed.

Parcel selection is applied during the harvest and wine making is traditional.

Maceration lasts from 25 to 35 days with a temperature control between 24 and 26 °C. Pumping over the cap is performed twice daily to get the best possible extraction. Maturing in oak vats lasts for 10 months, new and one year vats are used.

Serve at 18°C.

Good deep colour. Subtle bouquet with a soft vanilla touch.

A very delicate mix of the Languedoc varietals, a full body, with a touch of licorice framed by well softened tannins.

This wine is subtle yet powerful, and it will match meat dishes or a nice cheese board.
