90% in stainless steel, 10% in Foudres. Ageing for 6 months before bottling.

The vintage

The 2016 vintage in the Southern Rhone valley is exceptional, both in terms of quality and quantity, thanks to idyllic weather conditions that protected the region from climatic accidents throughout the whole year.

Tasting notes

This wine offers a generous nose with spicy notes underlined by black fruit (kirsch cherries). The attack is frank and continues with a beautiful volume around tight tannins, aromas of spices and some floral notes.
