    Syrah - Grenache - Carignan - Mourvèdre.

    Deep garnet colour.
    Intense nose redolent of red berries, redcurrant, red cherry with underlying notes of cigar, cocoa and a touch of black pepper.
    Bold on the palate with fine, ripe tannins, a long finish and a lovely hint of oak. This is an elegant, "ethereal" wine that boast considerable freshness and great deal of finesse.


    Terroir only composed of schist. Grapes from two areas: vines located at an altitude of 200 m facing north - north west (later maturity, freshness), other vines facing due south, facing the sea at an altitude of 350 m (generosity).


     100% destemmed, manual harvest. Three-week vatting with very light pumping over to "wet the cap" and regular punching down at 27 - 29°C. Racking at the end of alcoholic fermentation then placing in 225 litres barrels or in vats for malolactic fermentation. First presses added to free run juice.


     9 months: 60% in oak barrels (30% new barrels, 20% one-wine barrels) and 40% in vats to bring fruit.


    Between the steep slopes of the Pyrenees, the foothills of the Cévennes, the coasts of the Mediterranean and the right bank of the Rhône, the Languedoc vineyard benefits from an incredible diversity of soils and climates.

     These terroirs, Laurent Delaunay surveyed them to discover the small parcels of old vines at altitude of some of the best appellations of the region:

     Corbières, Minervois, Faugères, Limoux...

     Terraces of pebbles rolled by old torrents swollen by Cévennes storms, sandstone, marl, limestone scree and shale burnt by the sun and swept by powerful winds, such is the harsh natural environment in which only the vines that will give to our wines their strength of character and their Mediterranean typicality.
