Production

Sunny south and west facing vineyards on clay dominated soils are situated 320m above sea level and managed following the principles of reasoned agriculture. Refreshing alpine winds create cooler growing conditions and slower ripening relative to other Southern Rhône appellations. Equal proportions of Grenache Noir and Syrah are vinified using traditional rack and return method before ageing for six months in 2-3 year old, 450 litre barrels.

Tasting notes

Dark black bramble fruit with a warming touch of spice and slight smokiness. Lovely concentrated flavours of bramble and woody herbs. Beautifully balanced; the tannins give a nice grip and a velvety texture whilst the typical freshness you’d expect of Valréas continues to the finish.

Food match

Lovely with just-pink lamb chops with a herb crust.
