The blend promotes aromatic complexity, whilst the vineyard site expresses fresh, spicy aromas. Ageing on fine lees after alcoholic fermentation bolsters aromatic complexity and volume.
Delicate pale pink with beautiful shimmering reflections. The nose is invitingly complex with notes of red berry fruits flowing into tropical fruit notes. Smooth yet fresh, the palate is freighted with fruit and spice flavours with a mineral and saline edge that instils a lot of character.

The Mediterranean-type climate, which is typical throughout the appellation area, is marked by a significantly hot, dry season, mitigated by the effect of the landform. Due to the diversity and unique features of the different areas, major zones have been defined by their weather patterns and soil types.
There is a huge variety of soil types but hard limestone in the garrigue and schist soils are the most widespread. There is also gravel washed down by Languedoc’s rivers.
