The nose projects us into a more solar universe, a beautiful mixture of ripe black fruits, brandy, spices, tapenade and some notes of garrigue. The palate is balanced, round and delicious. The finish is long with ripe and spicy tannins. The vines are planted in high density, 8000 / 10,000 feet per hectare. Without insecticides or pesticides, the number of treatments is limited depending on the weather, the very low fertilizer supply is exclusively organic, as Yves retains respect for the balance of the soil and the plant. Control of vigour and yields, leaf stripping, green harvesting for better ripening of the grapes. The grapes are harvested manually. In the cellar, sorting, crushing and partial destemming. Fermentation in open vats for approximately 3 weeks with temperature control, punching down and regular pumping over. Malolactic fermentation in barrels, with natural yeasts. The wine is matured for 18 months in barrique barrels. ABV 13%
