    30yo vines here planted on clay based terraces near the forest of Rasteau at 350m altitude where it is a little cooler and more humid. Cuve aged, the malos didn’t take place (but were not blocked), and so the wine has surprising freshness, is zesty and zingy, with pear and freshly cut apple fruits with a hint of provencal herbs on the finish. Total sulphur of only 30mg/l.  For drinking now to 2020.

    This wine comes from 30yo vines, planted on a south-west slope close to the forest in limestone, clay and sand. Aged in older demi-muids, and given one day’s skin contact for a little extra texture, it offers nicely defined orange and peach fruits with a touch of pear skin(it feels very close to the fresh cut grapes) with an attractive salinity, and some food friendly bitters on the finish.  For drinking now to 2020.

    The objective here was to make a cuve aged wine with local character, good fruits and elegance, not a concentrated wine that would demand too much bottle age. There is attractive, clear-cut cherry and raspberry fruit, some liquorice, spice and Provence herbs, all with a very digeste quality. For drinking now to 2020.

    A very delicately extracted example, much paler in colour than the VDN from Trapadis. Cuve aged, it offers cherry/blackberry fruit with a hint of menthol and spice, and is light on its feet with a digeste quality, very fine tannins and clear-cut on the finish.
