Winemaker's Notes

Consistency of climate and abundant sunshine in the Ardèche perfectly ripen these bunches of grapes, whilst the drying Mistral wind eliminates any risk of rot.

Fully-ripened grapes are selected and pressed lightly before being aged in oak barrels made at the Latour cooperage in Beaune. The result is a full-bodied wine that is smooth with notes reminiscent of exotic fruits and vanilla spice imparted by the oak.
