The word from the Winegrowers: a gourmet wine
The wine is produced from vines which are planted near a small barn which served not so long ago as a storage place for grain to feed the horses which plowed the vineyard. These parcels of land in the small cold valley of the Combarelles at the entry of the Massif Fontfroide.
The thick layer of sandy soil is naturally poor in nutrients and drains well. These soils permit us to harvest healthy grapes at optimal maturity.
60% Cabernet sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Syrah. Yields 50 hl/ha.
