Notes about product
A papal wine that draws its power and confidence from the soil of different vineyards situated in the north, east and the center of the appellation. The sandy clay and safre soils of "Les Saintes Vierges" and "Le Pradel", and ancient alluvial and molassic sands of "La Font du Pape", contribute to the overall picture.
Hand picked and sorted, whole bunch fermentation with punching down for gentle extraction. Aged 18 months in foudre and terracotta jars.
The traditional blending of different vineyards and historical grape varieties of the region, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Counoise, finds its raison d’être in the elegance and harmony of the wines it produces.
