This 16.5ha property is situated near Mercurol. The vineyards are highly fragmented and spread over many sites within the appellation. The grapes are hand picked with careful selection both in the vineyard and on the sorting table in the winery. Low yields give a great concentration of flavour in the wine.

 

The 2016 vintage in the Rhône Valley is superb. 100% Syrah, the wine is dark and opaque in the glass. The nose is rich with fruit and spice in the background with a full and rounded palate. Strong flavours of blackberries and blackcurrants, hints of pepper and leather over a soft, but well structured, tannin base.
