Owned by François Ravel, this 400 hectare estate near Pierrefeu is based on schistous terraces in the Massif de Maures.
A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre & Carignan, with 10% of Tibouren, a Provençal variety that does particulary well on schist soils and that adds aroma and complexity to the blend.
After a short maceration period, to extract the lovely salmon pink colour and the flavour, the grapes are gently crushed in a low pressure pneumatic press. The juice is then fermented and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
Dry, fresh and very elegant the wine exhibits fruity and floral notes and a lovely structure in the mouth. The finish is long with excellent balancing acidity.
