De-stalking and light pressing. Given 15 days maceration with two strengthenings of 20 minutes per day. 40% of the blend aged in new oak barrels for 9 months.
Intense ruby red colour with purple hints, the nose is rich and complex with aromas of fresh red fruits, especially strawberries. There is a light touch of vanilla due to the oak ageing. The palate is rich with a great structure and a long finish of red fruits, light oak and chocolate notes.
Enjoy with classic Provenal meat dishes such as 'Daube Provenal' or strong cheeses. This wine can be enjoyed now, but will be perfect in 3 to 5 years.
