The vintage :
For the appellations of the northern Rhone Valley, 2015 was a truly exceptional year, almost without precedent!
After a mild, wet winter and particularly high temperatures in spring, summer brought a heatwave even hotter than 2003. Welcome rain arrived in abundance in mid-August, followed anew by glorious sunshine and a providential wind that guaranteed perfect sanitary conditions and a regular and rapid ripening of the grapes. And so the harvest benefited from optimum conditions during the first two weeks of September.
Maceration 3 days cold.
Two pumpover and two punch down / day.
Fermentation 20 days.
Syrah : 100%
A beautiful red-black colour, with violet undertones, this wine expresses a style that highlights the tension, and the vivaciousness of Syrah rather than their rich jamy character. The nose reveals a beautiful mineral freshness, notes of blackcurrant, peonies and sweet spices. On the palate, a fine tension, nourished by a silky tannic structure, accompanies this wine towards a rich and digestible finish.
Tasting temperature 16 to 18°C.
