Only the best grapes from the best vines go into the producer’s most expensive wine. This is a single vineyard site which produces wonderful intense and concentrated grapes of Syrah and Grenache. 2013 is still young, this theoretically could age for 10 years plus, however, it already provides fantastic depth and character of pepper, rosemary, eucalyptus, cassis and blackcurrants. Concentrated and intense in the mouth with a beautiful freshness due to it’s small and delicate tannins.

    About the Supplier
    Located in the heart of Provence, this is a 25-year-old vineyard between the peaks of the Dentelles de Montmirail and Mount Ventoux, the climate really is ideal for growing great grapes. Altitude, slope, cool winds and with large pebbles (about the size of your hand) making up the soil around the vines – these ideal conditions shine through in their finished product. They actually are specialists in growing vines as well as winemaking, arguably making them experts in ampelography and how you grow a grape to perfect maturity. This is why as well as top wines such as Vacqueyras and Cotes du Rhone Village, they also grow and blend single varietals such as Merlot, Chardonnay and Muscat.

    Sustainability scope:
    As a vine nursery they are obliged under strict controls to not add too many chemicals so that the mother vine can be prepared to withstand some disease on its own when it is grafted and sold. Not organic certified but made with minimal additives, love and care!
