Vineyard

Old Grenache and Mourvedre planted in 1964 and 1968. Vineyard called « Velage » composed of clay-limestone soil and round polished stones on the surface. Really low yields.

Winemaking

The grapes are hand-picked and sorted at the vineyard. They are fully destemmed then fermented in concrete tanks. Vatting time is between 28 to 35 days with daily grape- treading and pumping-over. Ageing is then in oak barrels (225L) for nine months.

Tasting notes

Deep red colour. The nose is complex and elegant with blueberry jam, thym and “Zan” aromas. The palate is silky, with blond tobacco and licorice notes. A full-bodied and fleshy wine. Elegant, with a beautiful tannic structure. This bottle is true velvet.

Food pairing

Vegetarian Moussaka – Candied porc from the Mont Ventoux – Pheasant Chartreuse and pearled juice – Ossau Iraty sheep – Dark chocolate cream and coffee custard.
