Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Pale colour with light purple hues. Open nose of small red fruits, fennel, bay leaf sauce. Beautiful balance on a frank, straightforward wine, with finesse, quite full-bodied. Character that prolongs the aromas of the nose on the freshness, the minerality. Beautiful frank and tense length, sapid.

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
Spread over 132 hectares, the vines grow on shallow, sandy-loam soils made up of sandstone and clay which favour drainage. Each hectare has 5,500 vines.
Viticulture: Harvesting takes place at night, in the coolest hours, to preserve the berries from oxidation. Vinification: The Syrah, Rolle, Semillon and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are left to rest in still thermo-regulated vats for 15 to 18 days. The Grenache undergoes skin maceration for 4 to 8 hours. Fermentation then takes place for 4 to 8 hours, depending on the grape variety, at a controlled temperature. The wine is aged on the lees for two months, then on the fine lees for one to two months.
