Winemakers Notes

Vineyard - Sourced from 'Les Turcs', a single 7ha east facing terraced high altitude vineyard, planted iwth minimum 50 year old vines, mosttly Grenache intermingled with some Syrah, high in the hills of Séguret. The high altitude and totally stoney terrior makes our Séguret quite unique.

Soil - Stoney soil.

Vintage Conditions -

Harvest Date -

Fermentation/maturation - All the grapes are hand-picked. Traditional long cuvaison using only wild 'natural' yeasts and 'Remontages' to release all the potential of the grapes and their skins. The wine is matured for 24 months  in a higher proportion of new oak barrels and demi-muids (600 litres) than Cairanne, two-thirds new, one third of 2nd and 3rd fill. Half of which are 600 demi-muids.

Tasting Notes -  The typically luxuriant fruit of principally Grenache Noir is streaked with a savoury vigour the length of its core. Yet seemingly at the same time moment thid core is enveloped by waves of luscious, almost gamey flavours, layered with high notes and deep subtlety. The finishis typically smooth and velvety. A complete and complex wine.

Cellar - 5 years

Serving Suggestions -  A wonderful match for hearty meat dishes and casseroles.
