About the wine

Grapes Varieties

The red wine is a mix of four grapes: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault.

Terroir & Vinification

The red wine is originated from the Southern Rhône Valley - north of Avignon - in the commune of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and 4 neighbouring villages.

10% of the Grenaches of the cuvée were vinified with the stems, the rest were completely de-stemmed. No cold pre-fermentation maceration. Rack and return and pump-overs are the two techniques used for extraction depending on the vats. Vatting is for 21 to 36 days depending on the batch. The previously filtered presses were aged separately and blended with drops in early spring 2015.

The maturation is 12 months in oak barrels aged from 1 to 40 years (capacity from 60 to 80 hl).

Tasting Notes

Its appearance reflects a deep ruby with purple highlights.

It has a complex nose combining mocha, cocoa, spices and leather on a background of red fruit. We can notice notes of undergrowth and smoke highlighting the ageing.

The palate is structured and powerful for a 2014 with a freshness typical of the vintage which makes it very good for ageing.

It can be served with red meat, game meat, stew, at 15-16°C.
