This cuvée, made mainly from the fruit of old Carignan vines, reflects its demanding and arid terroir on a slightly elevated and windswept plateau. The low yields and partial wood ageing produce a distinguished and concentrated wine with an extremely promising lay down potential.
Grenache - Carignan - Syrah - Mourvèdre
Clay-limestone and marly-sand soil covered with rounded pebbles, situated at an altitude of 150 metres above sea level. The presence of the Mistral wind throughout the year is a real advantage for the healthy growth of the vines. The higher altitude allows a greater temperature amplitude which helps obtain grapes of optimal ripeness.
Manual harvest, sorting both out in the vineyard and in the cellar. Fermentation at controlled temperature in concrete tulip vats, light extraction by punch-downs after 4 weeks in the vat for a progressive diffusion of the grape compounds. Malolactic fermentation, ageing for 18 months in barrels (40%) and concrete vats (60%).
Our Signargues cuvée is a terroir wine with great depth. Its nose exhales aromas of spices, green peppercorn, bergamot and wild blackberries, underpinned by its floral side and a touch of woody notes. This wine is characterised by its energy and directness, but it remains very palatable thanks to its mineral aspect associated with a fine and chiselled grain of tannin.
With game stews, braised aubergines, flavoursome mushrooms, or a sunny dish of baked Mediterranean vegetables.
