Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Comes from a selection of very old vines located on the "Crau". One of the plots was planted after the phylloxera outbreak of 1866. The owners' father named the wine in memory of his mother. Until the 2003 vintage, this cuvée was a blend of 80 % Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Since the 2004 and 2005 vintages more Mourvèdre have been used, up to 20%, from younger vines. This cuvée is aged in new foudres for 12-18 months.

Critical Acclaim

"Fresh and primal, with pure red cherry, plum, sweet tobacco and garrigue notes braced by a taut, stony undertow. There's solid grip and depth on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,000 cases made."
