The creator of this cuvée, Aurélien Houillon, made his first steps into the wine world with the father of natural wine, Pierre Overnoy. The 70-year-old Grenache vines used for this wine are cultivated organically and biodynamically. The plants enjoy a lightly sandy soil of clay and chalk with good exposure to the south-west.
The bunches are harvested by hand and thoroughly sorted. The grapes are destemmed before a 14-week maceration in steel vats and a gentle pressing. The wine matures for 10 months in used casks and is bottled without additives or sulphites.
This wine has a deep red colour with ripe notes of black fruit, gentle spices, and flowers like violet. It is velvety on the palate, persistent in its fruit character with well-integrated ageing notes. This is a wine to be uncorked within ten years.
