Terroir: Situated on ancient terraces called ‘Costières’ - dating back to the Pliocene period - overlooking the Etang de Thau lagoon and the Mediterranean sea. These coastal hills' geological structure is limestone, red marl, clay, sand, and stone. Benefits from a temperate Mediterranean climate and the Thau lagoon’s microclimate. Nights are cooler than further inland.

VineyardThis vintage comes from old vines and carefully selected plots. Monitoring of fruit development. Grapes harvested at night at full maturity between 13,5° and 14,5°.

Vinification: Produced following traditional vinification process: grapes are de-stemmed followed by a lengthy maceration of 20 days. Temperature-controlled fermentation at between 20° and 23°C (68F-73F). Regular racking off and pumping over for optimal color, tannin, and flavor extraction. Aged in oak casks and stainless-steel tanks for 12 months.

Color: Beautifully deep and concentrated ruby-red color with purplish highlights.

Nose: The nose conjures up black fruit notes (wild blackberry jam), spices (green and black pepper).

MouthThe tannins are very present with richly aromatic flavors of black fruit in syrup, green, and black pepper.

Aging potential: 5 years

Best served at 16°C (61F)

Food and wine-pairing suggestionsA powerful wine that is best served with grilled or roasted red meat or with typical dished from our region : roasted mutton or lamb, cassoulet from the Toulouse region, white beans stew with Montbéliard sausages, calf liver, and strong-flavored cheeses.
