Description

Appellation Minervois Protégée

Grape Varieties and Terroirs
Predominantly Carignan Old Vines. Our Carignan plots are situated on the Belvèze plateau. This superb quality terroir is high in rich organic matter and stones.

Vinification
In order to pay due respect to our old Carignan vines which are pruned in the goblet style, all of the plots are hand harvested and carefully placed in small boxes. To reveal the best expression of the terroir, they then go through the carbonic maceration process. During the following two weeks, there is strictly no intervention, to make the most of these fine fruits.

Aging: 18 months in one and two-year-old French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes
The robe is a brilliant, deep garnet red. The nose offers aromas of well ripened red fruits with notes of black olives. The fleshy and lush palate reveals black cherry notes and a spicy finale.
