  • This wine displays deep, luscious colour and presents a captivating medley of ripe red fruits, supple leather, and enticing hints of the forest floor. It is a sophisticated yet approachable wine with velvety, well-balanced flavours, delicate tannins, and a lingering, intricate finish. Concentrated, velvety and harmonious with a wonderful alliance between power and elegance and culminating
    in a long and savoury 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 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 softening the Syrah's tannins 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.

Winery

The grapes come from multiple plots, each with its characteristics, giving this wine incredible complexity: Bois de la Ville and Les Serres have a deficient and filtering gravel bed, allowing perfect water drainage and a very concentrated juice. Farguerol and Cansaud have red and blue clays with extremely rich aromatic properties. 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 herbicides or pesticides. All the varieties are ‘gobelet’ trained, except the Syrah which is trained vertically.
