“Les Combes” (“coombs” in French) shape the Southern slope of the Luberon massif. The Syrah and Grenache grapes growing on these parcels can fully and generously ripen and thus present a subtle balance between richness and delicacy.
The harvest is done at the end of September. The harvest is totally destemmed and not crushed. It is made by plot selection. Each plot is meticulously studied in order to make the harvest at the best time of the grape's maturity. There are 2 years of ageing in French oak barrels.
The nose is bright, expressive with red fruits and scrubland charming notes and some subtle spices appear. On the palate, this wine is defined by black and red berries which gives fleshy aromas. This cuvée is powerful with soft tannins. The final is full of balsamic notes and a lovely smoked perfume.
You will enjoy this cuvée with a rib steak or with a Provencal Stew. This wine has to be decanted and has a nice
ageing potential (up to 10 years)
