Origin

This Syrah is designated a Pays d’Oc Protected Geographical Indication wine. The particular character of this wine is derived from its region of origin, the Languedoc, whose climate is predominantly Mediterranean with very hot, dry summers and mild autumns, winters and springs. The Syrah grape variety is particularly well suited to this climate and the region’s terroir.

Vinification

Made from a blend of wines produced by a traditional fermentation and a thermo-vinification. We are seeking to achieve a balance between fruit and structure, which will bring out the finest expression of the grape variety.
