A blend of 35% Grenache, 33% syrah, 13% Cinsault, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Rolle. As always the fruit was grown on south facing chalky and limestone vineyards at 250-400m. The grapes were harvested by machines at night and within 2 hours very gently pressed to maximize the fresh, delicate aromas and light color that we aim for. Fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks with regularly stirred fine lees for an extended period to broaden the mid pallet. In addition to the usual raspberry, cherry, and wild strawberry red fruit aromas, there's a citrusy (grapefruit) and slightly floral note with the important underlying savory structure of lavender, grass and herbs de Provence.
