The entire zone has good drainage, high fertility, and tremendous agricultural aptitude, especially for red grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, and others. The Mediterranean climate has warm summers with broad daily oscillations between daytime and night time temperatures, and cold, rainy winters that allow for good vine development. The soils are of alluvial origin with moderate depth, and good for agriculture. The grapes were hand picked in mid- April and submitted to a week-long pre-fermentation cold soak at 8ºC (46ºF) to extract fresh fruit characteristics. Alcoholic fermentation took place at 25º–28ºC with daily pump-overs. The new wine remained on its skins for a period, after which the free run wine was separated from its skins and allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation naturally. Part of this wine was aged in oak barrels for 6 months and later reblended to achieve a more complex character.Suitable for Vegetarians and VegansThis wine is Organic.

This is a traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape serious and brooding and benefits from a little time to breath
and open up. The palate is complex with herby, tapenade flavours and ripe textured tannins balancing
the significant 15% alcohol which is expertly managed and integrated. Try with traditional roast lamb, lentil and vegetable moussaka and any rich hot-pot that heavily
features aromatic 'herbes de Provence'. The soils of the vineyard are made up of clay and chalk covered with a layer of the classic large
peebles ('galets') found in this area, which naturally keep yields low. The vines are over 60 years old
and situated near the plateau de Carbières (close to Château Montredon). Harvesting is by hand, with
selective sorting of the grapes. The grapes undergo a traditional long 'cuvaison' at quite high
temperature and with extended maceration on the skins, 21-24 days to extract plenty of colour, fruit
and tannins. This is followed by ageing for between 14-18 months in 'foudres' (large oak barrels), 70%
vats, 30% Burgundian pieces and casks.Suitable for vegansSuitable for vegetarians
