The grapes for this wine come from three terroirs: very old vines from the region of Nîmes, which lend richness and roundness to the wine, poor soils of the Aude valley, which give fruity aromas and the Béziers plain.
Long maceration period (3 weeks) for 70% of the blend in order to give roundness and tannins, 30% carbonic maceration in order to extract fruit. Oak barrel ageing for 10% of the cuvée.
Very deep robe.
Aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant, spices and mint.
Very complex and round palate with a long silky finish.
