AOC Collioure

They are three who courageously work this land of shale so unique to the Côte Vermeille, south of Collioure, with its terraced crops on the slopes of the Alberes, the last up-thrust of the Pyrénées before they plunge into the sea – where machine harvesting is forbidden – all is done and picked by hand.
Imagine 8 hectares in 14 parcels – at 300 meters above the blue of the sea. A small production of 7000 bottles with a blend of black grenache and syrah without the use of enzymes or yeast. Then an aging process of 12 months. At the end, velvety tannins, a powerful attack in the mouth with notes of liquorish and spices and a beautiful finish.
Enormous effort rewarded with a wine both generous and complex.
A Banuyls of the type « Rimage » is also produced at the property.
