Cuvée presentation

This cuvée made from 25 year-old vines boasts a nose that features aromas of liquorice, pepper and coffee with a hint of smoked and roasted notes. Full-bodied on the palate with aromas of ripe fruit. The finish is spectacular and lingering. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre come from soils of grey schist and are cultivated following natural methods. Vatting periods are long and the wine is matured for between 14 and 16 months in barrels, before being bottled without filtering.
