Grape varieties

55 % Grenache, 23 % Syrah, 12 % Mourvèdre & 10 % Cinsault.


Each vineyard plot as well as each grape variety is vinified on their own and our specific approach consists of gentle maceration of the grapes in a concrete tank over a period of 20 to 30 days. The tanks have a temperature control system and the time of maceration is carefully thought out according to the tastings and following our consultant enologist’s advice.
