18 months in oak barrels
Plot location: La Lessieurs, Sierre
Terroir: glacial moraine
Age of the vine: 17 years
A robe delicately laced with violet, a nose made of dark cherries and cassis. The attack supple and generous, the finish silky and harmonious, with notes of black pepper and cloves. A wine that recalls the great syrahs of the Northern Rhone.

Reassembly and extraction aromas, color and tannins manually in the barrel. End of fermentation pressing and closing barrels. Following 18 months maturing on the lees in these same barrels.
