Grape varietal: Grenache, Syrah, Carignan.
The "terroir" of our Colline rouge is composed of siliceous sandstone and calcareeous sandstone dating from the Late Cretaceous period at the end of the secondary era. The major characteristics of this "terroir" are a pebbly, clayey-sand soils facilitating good deep roting and allowing a balanced hydration of the plant combined with a surface texture of the soils possessing a heightened heat capacity linked to a significant stoniness.The South- South East exposure contribute to the limited production of the vines with a slow and regular maturation. This is the promise for an optimisation of the concentration and maturation of the grape.
After a first selection of the grapes at the harvesting point by the harvester, a second selection is made by our own personnal upon putting the grapes in the fermenting vats. The harvest is received by gravity, de-stemming And fermentation in thermo-regulated vats for 10 days. Then blending of the free-run juice and press-juice. Bottling before the strong heat of the summer.
Charming & highly fruit-filled nose, with aromas of blackcurrants. Lush to the mouth, rounded tanins well-mellowed & velvelty, a finish with a slight minerality giving upstanding and length while heightening the awareness of the fruit.
