Product description
Vinification: Cultivated using biodynamic methods, using only horse traction for work between the rows. Leaf thinning takes place before the harvest and the grapes are entirely hand-picked. Each grape variety and each parcel is macerated in separate batches in an unlined, thermoregulated precast concrete vat. Syrah: vatting and vinification of destalked grapes. Grenache and Mourvèdre: destemming and light crushing before vatting under strict temperature control. Very gentle maceration, limiting the extraction of tannins. Some pumping over for aeration, and humidification of the cap only. Carignan: whole bunch vatting at higher temperatures to extract the maximum of aromas. The wine aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The barrels are run off and the wines are blended after the Spring equinox.   

Paired with: A beef from Aubrac grilled, matured or slowly cooked.

Served: Decant 1 hour before service, best served at 17°C. 

Aging potential: At least for 15 years from the harvest.
