A Mediterranean Syrah, pure fruit.
In the middle of the 17th century, people used to say "à la franquette", the initial meaning was "in all frankness", "franquette" being a word derived from "franc", which seems to us to be well suited to this very frank cuvée, which expresses all the fruit of this hot and dry Mediterranean Syrah.
Hand-picked in small 12 kg crates, vinified in whole bunches at low temperature for 3 weeks. Gently pressed in the vertical press, alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature. Press and free run juices are assembled. Aged in stainless steel vats for 3/4 months, lightly racked and then bottled.
A simple and frank expression of a 100% Syrah cuvée vinified in whole bunches. This maceration gives it a slightly mentholated freshness, a sweet flavour with smoky notes and a length that reveals the taste of the wood of the vine.
Serve at 13 - 14 °C
