    Cuvée presentation

    Syrah vines grow on the terraces of Cornas along the right bank of the Rhône. They are located over 250m above sea level on terraces of decomposed granite and benefit from a micro climate that gives the wine a lovely mineral framework. 5,000 bottles are produced annually from 1.2 ha of vines. The harvest is manual and the grapes are destemmed. Vinification takes place in thermo-regulated vats. There is frequent, careful pump-over and punch-down. Maximum colour is extracted. Malolactic fermentation is done in new barrels and the wine is aged in new barrels before being bottled after 18 months. Over time, this Cornas which is suitable for ageing, shows great finesse.
