Produced on rocky terraces (clay and limestone), beneath the iconic Alaric hill, this wine is composed of a blend of Syrah, Carignan, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Grenache and Mourvèdre are hand-picked first, vinified in long maceration, and then blended with Syrah and Mourvèdre. Complex aromas of the Mediterranean countryside are very characteristic of the Corbières appellation. With an elegant mouthfeel, this wine has a beautiful palate of wild berries.
