85% Syrah (Serine, small berry ancient Syrah), 15% Grenache Noir. Serine planted from Selection Massalle cuttings origin Côte Rôtie.

Syrah cold soak during two days followed by whole-bunch, carbonic maceration for two weeks in stainless steel tank. Traditional vinification for the Grenache. After fermentation is completed, the wine is transferred to large wooden foudre for 9 months of élevage. Bottled in the spring following harvest without SO2.

Has all the perfume, perhaps without the flesh, of a Northern Rhône Syrah. Very perfumed.
