Syrah has a very dark colour and a fairly syrupy appearance. It has aromas of wild berry fruits (raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants), spices, cinnamon and a touch of mint. It is very rich and fat on the palate with liquorice notes on the finish.
Serve at 17-18°C with Mediterranean food, spicy dishes, sauced meats, game and charcuteries.
Suggestion: With grilled meat of course !
This Syrah comes from old vines in the region of Nimes (deep Rhône river soils), the Béziers plain (thick clay and limestone soils) and the Aude Valley (poor limestone soils). The 20 years old vines are planted on hillsides at an average altitude of 150 m.
Two vinification methods are used: a long maceration period for 70%, a carbonic maceration (fermentation of whole grapes) for 30%. A small part of the final blend is aged in oak barrels.
