Layered aromas and ageing
The stone capitelle that stands in our vineyard is the inspiration for this exceptional cuvee. In the image of this edifice, we hope that our wine finds its place in history; like its walls shaped with precision, we earch for the harmony of a delicate but structured wine. Our ageing cellar, constructed with the same Beaucaire stone, shelters the barrels underground, under vaulted ceilings that keep them cool and allow them to age in peace.

Selection of old Syrah vines, complemented by Grenache and Carignan
The most concentrated structure of the grape (with a low yield of 25-30 hectolitres per hectare) justifies a selection followed by a long and particular ageing. The ageing, which is done in casks for one year and then one year in vats, gives this intensely fruity wine sweet vanilla and grilled aromas at the same time. No fining or filtration. With a mature structure, this wine ages well and is characterised by volume and complexity.
