“Le Roc” (“rock” in French) comes from Syrah parcels, located at the foot of one of our most beautiful villages of the northern Luberon massif and overlooked by a limestone cliff. The North-East exposure of these parcels, their cool climate and their slow and late ripeness give to this wine a vibrant freshness and a great liveliness, along with a rich and fine oakiness.
Harvest and Vinification : The harvest is done at the end of September made by plot selection. Each plot is meticulously studied in order to make the harvest at the best time of the grape's maturity. The harvest is totally destemmed and not crushed. The ageing lasts 2 years in French oak barrels.
The nose is pure. Some Morello cherry notes mix with a very smooth and delicate smoked aromas. The mouth is bright with an aromatic purity in the background. Everything is well balanced and defined by the cherry. The tannins are structured, smooth, but present, in order to add complexity to this cuvée. The last taste is full of subtle cacao aromas.
