This cuvée combines grenache (80%), syrah (10%), and carignan (10%). The vines grow on the low alluvium terraces, made up of sand and silty clays
deposited by the river Ouvèze, in the zone known as "Piquebas" surrounding the estate.

After manual harvesting, the grapes are completely destemmed and thenblended immediately, uncrushed, in the vats. Fermentation occurs thanks to
the grapes’ natural yeasts. Maceration lasts for around twenty days before thewine is transferred into stainless steel tanks to mature for eight months.
The wine is bottled in June when crisp and fresh.

This perfectly balanced red wine is typical of the Vaucluse region and is mostlyabout red berries (redcurrant, raspberry) but also develops smoky notes.
It is excellent with duck confit, a leg of lamb, or to accompany a chocolate cake dessert. Lay down for 4-5 years or enjoy as of now after decanting 3 hours before tasting.
