We’re very attached to ‘Tradition’, our inheritance passed on from our parents and their parents before them for generations.
This wine symbolises our affection for Châteauneuf-du-Pape, our family and our obsession. It’s made from a blend of mostly Grenache. Rich and powerful, it reflects its ‘terroir’ with those black cherry notes typical of our appellation.
100% de-stemmed depending on the vintage.
We use gentle extraction techniques, fermentation lasting about three weeks to one month preceded by a cold maceration.
The must is then heated to around 28°C.
The Grenache and Mourvèdre are aged for 18 months in enamel-lined cement vats and stainless steel.
Ageing in used Bordeaux barriques is reserved for the Syrah to promote micro-oxygenation and give structure. To help retain lively aroma and flavour, our wines aren’t filtered or fined.
It can be enjoyed young from 2 to 3 years, with 15 to 20 years’ ageing potential.
1250 cases of 12 bottles are made on average every year.
