Beautiful garnet red colour. Intense, elegant nose with notes of fresh fruit mixed with spices, gradually developing hints of liquorice and smoke. On the palate, the intense flavours mingle with a smooth structure, and plump, well-integrated tannins. Good length and freshness make this a pleasant, drinkable wine.

The Côtes du Roussillon AOP was established in 1977. It comprises no more than 3000 ha of very steep hillsides with schist, granite and limestone soils. Our vines are located around the village of Maury, at the foot of a cliff dominated by the Chateau de Quéribus (Cathar castle) on soils resulting from the erosion of the Corbières Massif.
Since the last vintage, all our vinifications has not "added sulphur". The Grenache and Syrah grapes are traditionally vinified in small temperature-controlled concrete tanks. In order to optimize the wine's fruit and flexibility, the extraction is gentle, with a quick punching down carried out daily at the start of fermentation.
Part of the blend of the grape varieties is kept in barrels for ten months. The rest is matured in concrete tanks in order to preserve the aromas of red fruit and the garrigue. The wine is blended before bottling, at which time it expresses all its freshness and Mediterranean character.
