This wine is from vines located just behind the family home, located at the top of the clay-limestone “La Ponche” plateau, which forms part of the larger Plateau des Garrigues. As in previous years, the 2018 is a blend of Grenache (50%), Syrah (25%) and Mourvèdre (25%), the grapes having been fully destemmed before fermentation and maturation in concrete tanks. The result is a beautiful, deeply coloured wine, with pure, brambly, black cherry and rose petal aromas. Body is full and supple, with intense, chocolatey, black fruit flavours. The wine has good power and concentration but retains freshness, the finish being long, ripe and with a fine curl of tannins (for drinking 2021–2024+).
