A record rainfall of 1600mm over the year! (for memory 500mm in 2017 and normally 700mm on average per year).
The spring very rainy was real favourable to the attacks of mildew on grapes and leaves. Thanks to our vigilance we were able to protect the vines effectively and do not lose the crop. Summer was mild and the pressure exerted by the disease was less. A very beautiful crop was presented but sadly, the 14 august at 18:00, at ten days of harvest a very violent hail storm destroyed more than 30% of our nice harvest. Fortunately, the Mistral and the sun that followed have dried the grapes well and we were able to harvest in good conditions.
A complex soil with clay and sandstone coloured deep red by the iron oxide, refreshed by the salt air of the Mediterranean Sea. The soil is very well drained which improves the grapes quality.
Grapes varieties :
With 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% , 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Carignan.
We wait that the grapes reach their maturity, and then we make the harvest by hand and machine. We harvest those red grapes at first to preserve all the freshness of the fruits. While in the cellar, we use a cooling machine to refresh the grapes arriving in the cellar when the outside temperature is too hot to keep the flavour inside the fruits.
The grapes are in concrete tanks in order to macerate during few days (8 to 12) to extract lots of its flavour but not too much tannin. Then they are pressed next clarified and fermented. The temperature is controlled at all the different stages. (around 18°C).
Beautiful clear garnet color. Nose of black fruits, cassis, elderberry and spicy notes, liquor ice and cocoa. Beautiful mouth with ripe tannins well lining the whole palate. Long finish with notes of liquor ice and coffee. A wine to enjoy from now and to keep 3-5 years. To drink with friends and with simple meals (grilled meat, salads...)
