Deep dark red colour with ripe, Hedgerow nose, full-bodied, balanced tannins and herbaceous, plummy spicy flavours. Good minerality on the finish. All of the vineyards are farmed organically with great emphasis on the overall health of the vines and working with reduced yields, and the vines are produced according to organic methods using natural vinification and restricted use of sulphur.

Everything done in the vineyard is traditional from the use of local stone to create low walls to divide the parcels of land, part of the philosophy of respect for the cultural heritage of the region. This is extended further into viticulture where respect for the environment is paramount. All work is based on seeking equilibrium for the vine and allowing it to find its “autonomie” (defined by vigour, yield, nutrition and natural defence), an essential factor in the expression of terroir. Other than leaf thinning and pruning of the vine to encourage the microclimate, operations in the vineyards are strictly limited. It is the light permeable soils themselves from where the wines obtain their unique texture and vibrancy. This is a work in progress, according to the vigneron; only a truly living soil will be able to liberate the essence of the terroir. In the cellar simplicity and authenticity are the watchwords.
