Comments of the cellarman
This cuvée has an intense beautiful ruby red colour. Nose of ripe red fruit, blackcurrant and spice. In mouth, tannins are dense and silky.
Organic conversion in progress
The juice of syrah is kept in contact with the skin during 4 weeks in order to develop the concentration. Grenache is harvested at extreme maturity in order to extract maximum fruit. The temperature of fermentation is low to keep the aromas of the grapes. The grape varieties are aged during 20 months in vats before the bottling.
