Comments of the cellarman
Light color with coral glints. This floral and fruity wine mixes aromas of peach, orange and jasmine.
The attack is soft on aromas of flowers and citrus fruit, evolving on a well-rounded sensation.
Harvest is done by night in order to keep the aromas of the grapes. The grape varieties are immediately pressed, then clarified at low temperature.
Alcoholic fermentation is done between 15° and 18° Celsius for three weeks.
Wine ageing continues in vats for 4 months on fine lees.

"On those warm lands, the dominating Grenache combines well with the Syrah and the Mourvèdre. After nightly harvesting and direct pressing, the wine displays a light, orange salmon, robe, and delivers soft but elegant aromas of white flowers, hardly peppered. More expressive, the mouth is supple, round and slim."
