  • Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre that make up the cuvée are from sixty-six-year-old vines that have benefited from a clay and chalk-rich soil. Harvested, then destemmed they were then placed in concrete vats. André, his wife Marina and their daughter Alexandra then move on to pump-over and rack and return during fermentation then leave the grapes to macerate for forty days. The wine is then aged for a year. The wine is characterised by a frank and clean attack. It is ethereal on the palate. On the nose, complex aromas abound that oscillate between black fruit, spicy notes and some woody notes. Flavoursome and well balanced, it pairs well with delicate dishes such as marinated meat or mature cheeses.

    This young domaine is a star in the making and without doubt a future Rhône icon. As a daughter and granddaughter of winemakers, Elodie Balme grew up amongst the vines. After studying wine business and oenology, Elodie threw herself in the deep end and vinified her first 3.5 hectares in 2006. In 2009 she expanded she expanded further and built a cave. Today, Elodie cultivates 17 hectares of 40 year old Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Syrah, Merlot, and Clairette vines in the Rasteau, Roaix and Buisson communes.
