issued from the terroirs of Tautavel and Maury on shale and clayey limestone soil.

The harvest is carried out by hand with the use of small crates; grapes are sorted in the vineyard. The Syrah are destalked and vatting lasts between 10 to 12 days at 25-26 °C. A carbonic maceration is carried out on the Grenache noir and the Carignan during 12 days at 28 °C, the fermentation finishes in tanks at 24°C.

Ageing : i
n tanks during 5 months.                

Treatment : filtered and fined before bottling.

Storage :
a young wine to be drunk immediately, but can be laid down for 2 to 3 years.

Tasting notes :
very dense dark red colour. Intense nose of red fruits and grey pepper. The mouth has a gentle attack that gives way to a good balance between the strength, roundedness and finesse of the tannins.

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.
Carignan is a Spanish red grape varietal, but it is seldom seen there these days. Having arrived in France, it was exclusively cultivated in the vineyards of the Languedoc-Roussillon where it found the arid hillsides and poor fertility ideal for its needs.
Its authorised inclusion in the AOC blend for the zones where this grape thrives, such as AOC Côtes du Roussillon Villages,has allowed the rediscovery of this grape’s former greatness: a fruity nose, powerful structure and great ageing potential.
Carignan copes well with both seasonal drought and strong winds. Tannin-rich and late to develop, it needs a hot summerand a long autumn in a well exposed site.
The best wines are produced from grapes planted in their favoured “terroir”, giving wines full of red fruit and spices. As they get older, they develop other notes : ripe fruits (notably plums), toast, roast almond and leather. A wine made with a high proportion of old-vine Carignan makes a great wine that continues to improve with age.
