The grapes for this wine are sourced from vineyards located in the heart of Roussillon, stretching over wide, clay-limestone and stony terraces. A blend of Grenache Noir and Carignan, harvested at optimum ripeness then destemmed and crushed before undergoing traditional maceration at moderate temperatures with regular pumping over. The wine ages in tanks for a few months before early bottling.
