Wine-making process : The grapes are hand-picked using small crates before being carefully sorted. The wine-making process follows a traditional method with a long fermentation period. The juice is regularly in contact with the skins so as to ensure an optimal extraction. The final assembly is composed essentially of Grenache with also Syrah and Mourvèdre (10%). The wine is then aged in wooden casks until a perfect wood/wine balance is reached.
