"Blockbuster. Both modern and traditional, a full-bodied red that bridges the past and the present."
"This medium to full-bodied 2001 is impressively constituted, concentrated, generous, pure, and lush."
-The Wine Advocate
This Chateauneuf du Pape red is 70% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault and small part of the other varieties of the appellation.
The crop is picked and sorted manually. The grapes are destemmed and slightly crushed, then vatted for a long period as tradition dictates, to extract as gently as possible the phenolic compounds: the tannins and anthocyanins that provide the wine's colour and health-giving attributes.
We make very concentrated wines especially suited to prolonged ageing; but they are also highly pleasurable to drink young. During the maturation process - 9 to 15 months in oak casks and barrels - we continue to refine the wines' structure in order to obtain a very harmonious, well-balanced wine.
