This wine combines two seemingly opposite grapes: 100-year-old Grenache and young Syrah. However, these two varieties comple- ment one another beautifully: a fusion of masculine and feminine – a silky blend of power and finesse with fresh fruit aromas, flowers and spices
50% Syrah from the Cabrieres plot, which gives fruit, power, color and cocoa aromas.
50% Grenache from our 100-year-old plots of Grand Pierre/Rayas, Palestor and Terres Blanches blocks. Wine from these grapes has conside- rable finesse and silkiness.
Rigorous bud pruning. Green harvesting is done. The picking is entirely by hand, with a meticulous double sorting in the vineyard.

Wine-making in underground concrete vats. Destemming of underripe stalks. The wine stays on the skins for over 4 weeks.
