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.
