100% Grenache Noir (old vines of more than 50 years old). Manual harvest. Mutage (addition of alcohol) during fermentation followed by long maceration. Aged in tank then in large oak barrels for several years.
Very deep intense red in colour. The old vines bring a symphony of cooked fruits and fig aromas intermingled with oaky and roasted coffee notes. This Rivesaltes, with its generous, velvety palate, offers great aromatic complexity and a long, elegant final.
Food and wine pairing: Absolutely delicious, especially with chocolate desserts or with red fruits, and equally good as an aperitif.

The vineyards of Roussillon are exposed to demanding weather: this is the ultimate Mediterranean climate with its hot summers, its mild autumns and winters and its rainfall concentrated in autumn and spring.
Every other day, the region is buffeted primarily by the Tramontane, a dry northerly wind which promotes outstandingly healthy fruit and reduces the need for plant protection products.
The soils are marked by the uplift of the Pyrenees which has shaped its landform and given rise to myriad vineyard sites with distinctive characteristics. The diversity here is unparalleled.
