This 5-hectare vineyard representing a single piece of land was planted at the beginning of the 1980s. The soil, made up of gravel offering good drainage, was deposited by the rivers where the Isère and the Rhône converge. They absorb warmth resulting in the admiral expression of the Syrah grape variety.
The wines are made in fiber or oak casks. Total destemming. Cold maceration with a rise in temperature up to 25°C. A post-fermentation maceration at 25°C, the duration of which is guided by tastings.
Region: Vallée du Rhône
Appellation: Crozes-Hermitage AOC

Maturing: For a year in oak, with barrels used once or twice before, or in casks. The malolactic fermentations are carried out in barrels. Maturing offers finesse, conserving at the same time the fruity flavors.
