The whole harvest is crushed, then infused and the alcoholic fermentation takes place with indigenous yeasts. Aging lasts 12 months in barrels. The wine is bottled by gravity in the lunar phase and is not yeasted, not acidified, not chaptalized, not fined and not filtered.
TASTING NOTES: Exudes fruit aromas in abundance with blackberries, blueberries, pomegranates and also garrigue notes. On the palate it's juicy, greedy, the material is fleshy and velvety. There is a perfect balance between alcohol and acidity.
