Winemaker's Notes

This terroir lies in Le Beausset community which is perched on the south side of Le Beausset Vieux hill. Its soil is clay and chalk (200-million-year old Muschelkalk underground) with a great variety of surface soils. The horse-shoe shaped terroir at an altitude of 270 meters.

The Cuvée Spéciale La Migoua, contains 50-60% of the Mourvèdre grape depending on the year. The Cinsault grape is important mostly on the hillside of La Louffe which faces south. It often expresses more game bird flavour than the rest of the other cuvées.

La Migoua is extremely complex. This wine has variety of scents and a fine balance which guarantee ageing.

Critical Acclaim

"A pure and powerful red, finely polished and structured, with a broad swath of red plum, raspberry and cherry flavors. Ther's concentrated cedar and cigar box on teh finish. Tempting now. Best from 2010 through 2015."
