DESCRIPTION:
The mountain with its rocky slopes and the garrigue that clings to it with
stubbornness. The red "Vallée de Cucugnan" is a cuvée made with
a majority of Syrah. A warrior, the Syrah survives despite all the difficulties of a
dry and windy climate. It offers us a wine with an unparalleled finesse of tannins and
with an extraordinary aromatic character.

TASTING :
Ruby red colour with light garnet tints. Clean and frank nose, red fruits, wild strawberries.

great length. Beautiful roundness that retains freshness and fruit, slightly
toasted, full-bodied. A wine for ageing that will hold many surprises throughout its life.
