The land is Mediterranean with a pre-vailing "Mistral" wind. This harsh wind is both necessary and beneficial to the development of the wines and is caused by the difference between the Southern and Northern Rhône's atmospheric pressures. Seasonal rainfall, baking temperatures and lots of sunshine are also the prevalent in this region.
The cuvée "Saint-Esprit" comes from a small valley which nestles in the northern part of the Ardèche. The vineyards are planted on south-facing granite slopes nestled between the villages of Saint-Julien and-Saint-Alban.
Part of the wine (30%) is aged in oak barrels as to provide a "touch of wood" in the blend. The remaining is kept in vats to preserve fruit aromas. These wines are racked regularly in order to allow their components to stabilise naturally. The "Saint Esprit" cuvée is bottled after blending and lightly filtering.
70% percent Syrah, 20% Grenache with the rest made up with Carignan and Mourvedre. Aged all in tank, the wine is medium to full-bodied and possesses sweet tannin as well as a long finish.
|Grape type||Syrah/Shiraz, Mourvèdre|
