Tasting Notes

Intense, bright and ripe raspberry Grenache fruit balanced by peppery, savoury characters from the Syrah and Mourvèdre. Generous but properly balanced and underpinned with smooth, ripe tannins.

Producer details

The estate was founded in the 11th Century by the hermits of Sainte Cécile d'Estagel Abbaye and it made wine for pilgrims en route to Santiago de Compostella. The estate encompasses 80 hectares of sunny, south-facing vineyards planted on sandstone soils and benefitting from Mediterranean breezes that cool the vines in the summer.

In the vineyard

The domaine is in the south of the appellation cooled by the sea breezes of the Camargue and sitting on an ancient raised river bed with galets roulés soil. The vines are 25 years old and yields are around 50 hl/ha.

In the winery

Grapes are destemmed and fermented traditionally for 15 days to ensure a good balance of fruit and tannins.

Food Recommendations

Côte de Boeuf. lamb cutlets with rosemary, dishes with a touch of chilli spice or mature hard cheeses.
