From the producer:

The vinification is traditional. After a light crushing, it takes place in closed concrete tanks, during, 15 to 20 days, at 28-30°C.  Two daily pump-overs, release and lees stirring are carried our during the alcoholic fermentation. After completing its malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in centenary oak vats as well as concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. Bottling takes place in the autumn, winter of the year following the harvest.

Dark ruby with light edges.  Medium intensity with aromas of small stone fruits and delicately spicy hints of pepper, thyme and garrigue (bush land).  Smooth, warming and elegant. Its aromas recall wild red fruits, dark cherries, forest floor and liquorice. The tannins are soft yet precise.  

2016 : An exceptional year. The reds are aromatic, powerful, round, fine and balanced
