True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.” - Henry Miller 

Organisation of the vineyard: The Domain disposes of 8 hectares of Syrah, 46 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and 10 hectares of Marselan, planted at a density of 5 000 plants per hectare. The orientation of the plants is from North to South, on a mix of argil and gravel, placed over a limestone layer. The pruning type is single Guyot. Plots were selected that yield 6 to 8 t/ha.

Winemaking method: The grapes are hand-harvested. Cabernet Sauvignon and Marselan underwent classical maceration-fermentation in piston winemakers, whereas for Syrah we chose carbonic maceration of undestemmed grapes. Aging was made in first and second use French and American oak barrels, for 6 to 12 months.

Tasting notes: On the first contact, this is a wine with a timid attack, with dark notes of dry figs and wood, earth and ink darkness. It instantly unveils the jam and fresh fruits nuances, doubled by a less noticeable range of flavours which contribute to completing the whole: tobacco, fine leather, pepper and spices, a tinge of vanilla and an unperceivable allusion to exotic fruit. The taste seems an encounter of youth and maturity, with well measured, perfectly integrated tannins, confering weight and balance to a youthful acidity that reduces somewhat the austere nuances of the wine.

Recommended serving temperature: 16ºC – 18ºC. The possible deposits certify the minimal intervention performed on the wine.
