The 100% dry-farmed Syrah grapes were sourced from a single vineyard, “Les Planels” La Livinière. The fruit was hand-harvested, destemmed and fermented for 8 days in concrete and wood open-top foudres. The wine benefitted from an extended maceration with pump-over for 4 weeks, before being basket-pressed. The finished wine saw no aging and was stabilized and filtered before immediate bottling with no added sulfites.
The color is deep purple. The nose is delicate with aromas of black fruit and a touch of earthiness. The palate is beautifully concentrated and earthy, with flavors of blackberry, cassis and a hint of garrigue. The finish is lush, languid, with a wonderful spice note.
