AOP Vacqueyras red

Top of the range, confidential wine.

Alpha-Omega is the perfect combination of two grape varieties, two emblematic parcels and two complementary methods of vinification. On one side century old Grenache growing in a sandy soil, matured in concrete tanks to keep maximum original fruit and on the other side old Syrah vines aged more than 80 years whose roots delve into the chalky soil of “La Verde vineyard site. The Syrah wine is aged for 14 months in new oak barrels.

Grape varieties

50 % Grenache, 50 % Syrah.

Vinification techniques

Two emblematic and yet diametrically opposed parcels regarding soil characteristics and styles have been carefully selected to make this wine. On one side 50% of almost century-old Grenache vines growing in sandy subsoil and wines matured in raw concrete vats to preserve character. On the other side, 50% of old Syrah vines growing in a chalky parcel with wine matured for 14 months in the best French oak barrels.
