Description: The Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon vines are situated in a Northerly aspect on limestone soil at 300 metres altitude, whilst the Mourvèdre faces due South on pierres roulées, like in Chateauneuf du Pape. Yields are kept down to a minimal 25 hl/ha thanks to bunch thinning and manual sorting of the grapes. He uses ТreasonedУ viticultural practices, keeping the use of chemicals to a bare minimum, cultivating the soil, removing leaves to let the generous sunlight into the canopy and performing a green harvest where necessary. The winemaking is traditional in style, each variety being vinified separately using natural yeasts and long maceration. The wines spend up to 24 months in barrel (one third new), but the oak is seamlessly integrated even upon release.
