This wine exhibits a saturated magenta color and offers an expressive bouquet of red and dark berries, smoked meat, olives, and floral notes. On the palate, it is sappy and penetrating, showcasing flavors of cherry-cola, blackberry, and baking spices with excellent detail and a mineral-driven lift towards the finish. The wine has a long and subtly chewy finish, with persistent smokiness, well-integrated tannins, and harmonious persistence. Situated in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation, the largest in the Northern Rhône, the vineyards benefit from a diverse range of soils, including sandy areas. This diversity contributes to the complexity and character of the wine. Grapes are fermented with stems (20-30%) for three weeks in stainless steel vats, preceded by sulphur-free cold maceration. After racking off lees, up to 50% undergoes aging in small Burgundy casks. The wine is blended and bottled approximately a year later. ABV 13%
