      This wine is issued from old Grenache vines and old vines of Syrah and Mourvèdre. The grapes are picked at optimal maturity and sorted out before crushing. Grenache brings roundness, fatness and softness, while Syrah and Mourvèdre bring structure and frame. The tannins are extremely smooth and elegant, the wine is like velvet in the mouth, with roundness, complexity and a long finish of spices. It's like a baby Chateauneuf du Pape
