Terroir                      

Located to the south of the Via Domitia, the terroir mainly consists of ancient terraces called ‘Costières’ – dating back to the Pliocene period – overlooking the Etang de Thau lagoon and the Mediterranean sea. The geological structure of these coastal hills being limestone, red marl, clay, sand and stone.                                                   

Colour

Deep ruby-red colour with light purplish highlights.

Nose

The nose is very inviting with ripe black and red fruit aromas (red and blackcurrant), liquorice sweets and light woody undertones.

Mouth

The attack feels rounded and delicate. Then the mouth develops and evolves into very ripe black fruit.

The final is long in length and well balanced with discreet and elegant woody notes that conjure up a ‘roasted’ afterfeel.

A very distinguished and powerful wine with very present tannins.

 

Best served

At 16°C
