Harvested at the coolest hours of the night, some Grenache and Cinsault are bled, which gives the wine a lot of fat.
Others are pressed directly and bring their freshness. The juices are fermented between 15 and 18 °C in stainless steel tanks, which allows the maximum amount of fruit to be kept.
The colour is delicate, brilliant and pale pink.
The nose, intense, delivers floral notes mixed with aromas of peach and apricot.
In the mouth, the attack is fresh, then the fat prevails.
The finish is long and silky.
Food and wine pairing : as an aperitif, a rack of lamb, sea bream a la plancha, small stuffed vegetables.
