Tasting Notes
Wheat-hued and pale in the glass, with a nose that is full of ripe green apples and shea butter. The palate is stone-smooth, delicate, with acid that slowly, grandly builds. The finish is like freshly-shelled pecans: nutty, rich and chalky

A Glass of Facts

The domaine thrives by the Black Mountain (most south relief of the Massif Central) and stretches on twenty hectares which represent sixteen vines flourishing on south exposed terrace fields in mediterranean climate, growing on mostly clay-limestone soil, with occasional schist, sand and marble. Since the very beginning the whole vine process is organic. The grape variety is totally mediterranean, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah for the red. Grey Terret, Grey Grenache, White Grenache, and some Muscat for the white. The non-vine land of the domaine is olive trees, fields and garrigue. The grape harvest is manual through twelve kilo crates which are gravitationally emptied in the containers. All yeast and lactic bacteria are indigenous, as the only input to my wine is a minimal dose of sulphur necessary during the bottling
