Terroir & vineyards
The estate takes its name from the steep cliff of quartzite that dominates its vineyard, in the town of Causses-et-Veyran. The vineyards are located on slopes of Ordovician shale, mainly exposed south / south-east.
A wine made from a blend of Syrah (50%), Grenache (35%) and Carignan (15%).
Vinification and aging
The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats at 25 ° C to ferment the grapes. We then operate a long maceration of Syrah for 20 days on average. Malolactic fermentation is also done in stainless steel tanks.
The aging is done in stainless steel tanks for 12 months.
A wine with an intense black color and a nose of black fruits and pepper with a slight hint of smoke. In cap, we find these black fruit aromas supported by a structure that is both rich and supple.
Met & Wine Agreement
To enjoy at 16-17 ° C with skewers of lamb or game (deer with cranberries, quail with grapes).
