Terroir
Known for its exceptional micro-terroir, the Côte Vermeille, has dry and arid summers, mild winters, and a strong influence from both the Tramontana wind and the sea. The soil is Schist derived from the decomposition of the Cambrian volcanic basalt.

Age of vines 40-50 years old

Vinification
A blend of 90% Grenache noir and 10% Carignan, only the best, perfectly ripe grapes are hand-selected and de-stemmed. Fermentation is spontaneous with indigenous yeasts. Mutage is carried out by adding organic neutral-tasting wine alcohol and maceration last approximately one month at controlled temperatures. No sulphites are added during winemaking, only a small amount at bottling to help stabilise the wine.

Ageing takes place in an inert vessel for 8 months and the wine is unfined and unfiltered before bottling.

Food and wine pairing
This is a sweet and fleshy wine with lovely juicy fruit which is best served chilled (15°) as an aperitif. It pairs beautifully with goat cheese and sheep's cheese, fresh figs, strawberry coulis, as well as with chocolate and red fruit desserts.
