  • A deeply colored wine with complex aromas of ripe red fruits, leather, and attractive hints of undergrowth. A concentrated, yet elegant wine with smooth flavors, harmonious and fine tannins, and a long, layered finish.

The grapes were partially destemmed, crushed and pressed. Extraction was kept to a minimum to avoid an overly tannic wine. Alcoholic fermentation was started by introducing selected yeasts and took place in temperature controlled concrete vats at 28-32°C. During fermentation, daily pumping over took place. The Grenache and Mourvèdre were vinified and aged in concrete vats for 18 months. The Syrah was aged for 18 months in barriques of first and second use, with the objective of not imparting oaky aromas, but rather to soften the tannins of the Syrah while young. Final blending took place six months prior to bottling.

Deeply coloured with complex aromas of ripe red fruits, leather and attractive hints of undergrowth, this velvety wine shows a wonderful alliance between power and elegance, culminating in a long, savoury finish.

The grapes come from multiple plots, each with its own characteristics giving this wine its incredible complexity: Bois de la Ville and Les Serres have a deficient and filtering gravel bed allowing the perfect drainage of water, resulting in a very concentrated juice. Farguerol and Cansaud have red and blue clays which boast an extremely rich aromatic property. Finally Cabrières and Revès whose chalky-like limestone brings the overall structure and a long finish to the resulting blend. The countless round pebbles ‘les cailloux’ in French, in the vineyard give the wines its name. The vineyard is farmed
using sustainable methods, without the use of herbicides or pesticides. All the varieties are ‘gobelet’ trained, with the exception of the Syrah which is trained vertically.
