HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Managed by the renowned Maine and Jean-Marie Guffens-Heynen
  • Crafted in the sunlit highlands of the Lubéron region in the south of France
  • Fruit sourced from high-altitude plantings (around 420m) on limestone-rich soils
  • Intriguing blend of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah
  • A text book representation of southern France's vinous richness, balancing sweetness, freshness, and spicy undertones

TASTING PROFILE:

  • Aromas reveal red and black fruits with a hint of spice
  • compote-like fruitiness, with fine yet assertive tannins and a lasting finish

IN THE VINEYARD:

  • Nestled in the heart of Luberon, with the warm embrace of the sun mitigated by cooler nights
  • High-altitude vineyards rich in limestone allow for a slower grape maturation, ensuring a balanced flavour profile

IN THE WINERY:

  • Hand-harvested grapes from the 420m altitude plots undergo a meticulous selection process
  • The blend consists of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah
  • 22 to 25 days of maceration, followed by ageing in 50% new oak barrels, retaining the wine's fruity purity while adding complexity

RECOMMENDATIONS:

  • Pairs beautifully with red meats in rich sauces, and even well-prepared game
  • Serve at a temperature of roughly 16°C 
  • Best stored in a cool, dark place with a potential ageing capacity of 5 years. If ageing, ensure it's stored horizontally to maintain cork moisture
