Grenache (or grenache noir) is a spanish grape varietal
 
A high quality grape, it produces powerful, colourful and unctuous red wines, aromatic and silky rosés and highly sugared fortified wines, known in France as Vin Doux Naturel or VDN, with an important potential for long ageing.
Grenache is extremely vigorous in growth and drought resistant.
 
It is present around the whole Mediterranean rim, in the vineyards of Languedoc-Roussillon. This fast growing varietal must be short-pruned (goblet or cordon) It is suited to slightly acidic gravelly soils (schist, shingle). In our vineyards it produces from 20 to 40 hl/ha.
Grenache is the mainstay of our structured and aromatic wines for laying down.
 
 
Syrah, or syrah noir, is a red French grape varietal originally associated with the northern Rhône. These days with the rapid growth in its plantation, it is starting to become a worldwide varietal. In the Northern Rhône it is the only grape authorised for the production of Cornas AOC .It can be blended with Marsanne and Roussanne grapes in the wines of Crozes-Hermtage, Hermitage et Saint-Joseph, and with viognier in the red wines of the AOC Côte Rôtie (according to a decree of December 21st, 1966, “Syrah must constitute at least 80 % of the weight of grapes placed in tank to be have the right to be called AOC Côte Rôtie”).
Outside its region of predilection, this grape was been neglected for a long time, due to its poor yield and sensitivity to certain diseases. This is no longer the case and syrah now stretches along the whole Rhône valley, in Provence, and Languedoc-Roussillon and the south west, notably replacing carignan which has received a somewhat unjustly tarnished reputation. Plantation passed 1 600 ha in 1958 and was more than 37 000 ha in 1994 (more than half of which was in the Languedoc-Roussillon). In 2006, the planted area had reached 67 592 ha.
