A Grenache dominated wine with 15% Mourvèdre, both coming from the Croix de Bois vineyard, but also including some Counoise from Le Pointu (a fine vineyard of sandy soils in the Rayas/Nalys sector.) Ageing is part in tank and part oak demi muid barrels. More bunches were destemmed than usual in 2018 meaning there was less than 15% whole bunch fermentation.
