  • Winemaker Notes The Syrahs have had small yields but are very fragrant and very concentrated. The Grenaches that produced more, are cooler and bring a nice balance. The Mourvèdre has a lot of depth with a chocolate side.
  • Tasting Notes Characterized by a dark purple color. The nose is intense red and black fruit, all part of a discrete mineral background. The palate is smooth with a pleasant fruity and spicy intensity, supported by the freshness.
  • Press 88 Gilbert & Gaillard

    • Soil: Clay and limestone hillsides between 150 and 200 meters
    • Average age of vines: 25 years
    • Climate: The Mediterranean climate here ensures plenty of sunshine, ample rainfall especially in autumn and the frequent presence of the North Wind
  • Vinification
    • Harvest: Hand and machine depending on the plot. Done by gravity, so as to preserve the maximum amount of grapes that are sent to the tanks. Grapes are destemmed.
