Wine of Languedoc
This Syrah comes from 20-year-old vines, planted on hillsides at an average altitude of 150 m in the region of Nîmes (deep Rhône river soils), the Béziers plain (thick clay and limestone soils) and the Aude Valley (poor limestone soils). The vines are pruned according to the “Gobelet” (free standing) and “cordon de Royat” (trellised) methods. The yield is relatively low (40 to 50 hl/ha).
Two vinification methods are used: a long maceration period for 70%, a carbonic maceration (fermentation of whole grapes) for 30%. About 10% of the final blend is aged in oak barrels.

Tasting Notes : This wine has a very deep colour, almost black. Complex, rich, Syrah has a very dark colour and a fairly syrupy appearance. It has aromas of wild berry fruits (raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants), spices, cinnamon and a touch of mint. It is very rich and fat on the palate with a long, silky finish. This is a wine of a rare complexity.
Food & Wine: Serve at 17 – 18°C with Mediterranean food, spicy dishes, sauced meats, game and charcuteries.
