The perfect partner for light, modern and joyful cuisine

Grape-variety Syrah, Grenache
Soil The vineyards are located in the coastal part of the Fitou appellation, at an elevation of between 0 and 5 metres. They benefit from the mild influence of Leucate lagoon. The farm is situated on clay-limestone soils.
Winemaking The winery houses small stainless steel tanks, all of them equipped with temperature control, that allow each vineyard and grape variety to be fermented separately. The grapes are picked by hand and brought to the winery with no added sulphur. The fruit is protected in the hopper using dry ice and then macerates at low temperatures in an air-free environment for 2 to 4 hours in the press. The juice is cold clarified and racked before fermentation. After a small amount of yeast is added, fermentation occurs at low temperatures – 14-16°C – to promote the development of aroma.
Tasting Note Brilliant pinkish hue with purple tints. Persistent, aromatic nose of boiled sweets. Notes of stewed fruits and crushed red fruits on the palate which is fresh, aromatic and long-lasting. Drinking temperature: 10-12°C.
