Harvest at optimal maturity. Pre-fermentative maceration. The vinification is carried out by separate grape varieties with destemming, long vatting and regular punching down. Part of the harvest is aged in oak barrels.
A wine with a pretty intense ruby colour with purple tints. Nose of small red and black fruits, with notes of spices and undergrowth. The palate is silky and fruity, with fine and elegant tannins.
Food and wine pairing: Chicken tagine with figs, tabbouleh, vegetable caponata, St Félicien cheese.
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.
