Terroir(s)See the interactive terroirs map
This Grenache hails from a plot located near La Boulzane, a tributary stream of the Agly River, in the Haut-Roussillon.
The grapes are handpicked, once the grapes have reached their peak of ripeness, in late september. They are completely destemmed before undergoing classic vinification with 2 daily pump-overs and long maceration in contact with the cap. The wine is aged in 53-hl wooden vats.
This Grenache, with its fruity aromas and flavours, vegetal (gentian, marshmallow root) and empyreumatic (caramel) notes offers a full-bodied palate that combines both salinity and sucrosity underpinned by lovely peppery tannins. A pure and rather wild expression of this varietal!
Food & Wine
This Grenache may be paired with pigeon or roasted quail with pearl onions and grapes, osso buco or roasted veal chop, a fine selection of goat and sheep’s milk cheeses.
