The grapes come from three terroirs: 65% come from the eastern Corbières (coastal vineyards yield grapes that lend freshness and elegance), 20% from the edge of the Fitou (a terroir located further south whose grapes offer lovely aromatic richness) and 15% from the Corbières Boutenac cru which give this wine its depth.
The grapes are handpicked and brought to the winery in 40 to 50-kg tubs where they are immediately transferred to tanks without crushing or pumping. Maceration lasts 15 days. The press wine is added to the free-run wine.
40% in barrels (20% new oak) and 60% in stainless steel tanks.
Very intense black colour.
Floral nose reminiscent of violet along with fine spices (white pepper), black olive and notes of humus and tobacco.
Rich and full-bodied on the palate with lovely substance and smooth tannins. Flavours of jammy fruit and baked goods on the finish.
