A robe of sibylline purple adorns this cuvée. The first nose offers a chiseled aromatic of blackberry, a hint of violet and cocoa.
On the palate, the silky tannins are carried by a fine acidity and a powerful, ample and generous aroma. Spicy, slightly peppery and minty, coffee and leather notes as well as those of blueberries fill the mouth.
The length in the mouth is incredible and the finish fresh.

Primeur Vintage 2021
The year 2021 was a demanding vintage around the Mediterranean and for France in many respects. While the winter of 2021 was mild with little precipitation. We had a cold snap when the first vines had already budded.
Many vines in the Var have frozen for the second consecutive year. This led to a certain intra-plot heterogeneity. Spring had some good rains, which helped us but forced us to be very vigilant and to accelerate vegetative growth between sun and rain.
From May 15 until the end of September, the vines never had a drop of rain. Only 40mm in 5 months is very little. No big heat but the vine suffered from the lack of water.
The harvest was early and the choice of harvest dates was complicated by heterogeneity and water stress and localized blockages in maturity. However, with meticulous work in the cellar, we are satisfied with the quality of the vintage, with freshness and a beautiful aromatic complexity.
