The vines are located in the Commune of St Génies de Comolas (Gard) on a poor sandy soil with lime-clay subsoil. With elegance and finesse in mind, the Grenaches grown there produce a low yield. The rest of the fruit comes from Travaillan in the Vaucluse and are grown on a stony soil with lime subsoil and produce a powerful wine. The vineyards are naturally worked with sustainable practice in mind. The blend is 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% old-vine Cinsault. The wine has aromas and flavors of small red berry fruits, blackcurrant and cherries with slight touch of spices.
