The vines

1 hectare - "La Vignasse" and "Les Travesseres"

 

Planting density

4000 grapevines / hectare

 

Vine culture

Short cutting, 6 shoots with 2 eyes. Soil maintenance with plowing, organic fertilizer, ecologic phitosanitary protection.

 

Winemaking

Resulting of old black grenache vines selection (+ 40 years), we add it a little of Syrah and Carignan. A part of the blend stays 10 months in barrels.

Harvested manually, removed of their stalks, the three varieties grapes macerate separately with traditional method during 4 weeks; punchings regulars during this time to let an exceptional aroma extraction.

Wine tasting

With a deep red color, reveals very ripe red fruits aromas. A lot of volume and well integrated tannins.

 

Food pairings

Very good pairing with cold cuts, tapas, grilled meats and goat cheeses.
