Grapes are hand-picked, with stringent double sorting at the vine. Gentle pressing and selective destemming, followed by 25-35 days' traditional fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless-steel and wooden vats. Pneumatic pressing, then systematic malolactic fermentation. Maturation in vats for the first 10 months, then in foudres (50-70hl) for 12 months. Bottled unfiltered at about 22 months. A classic red Châteauneuf-du-Pape, very fine and elegant. The best vintages will age for 25 years and more.

Wine SpectatorCoated with unctuous linzer torte, warm plum sauce and pure cassis fruit flavors, while notes of maduro tobacco, mint, green fig and toasted anise flitter throughout. This is lush and dense, but well-harnessed through the finish, with a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note and lingering fresh acidity. Best from 2014 through 2030. 4,200 cases imported.
