76 parcels all across the Ventoux and in the Dentelles area, mostly in altitude (250-400 meters).
Vinification
Most of the time, Ventoux offers superb climatic conditions especially in the higher altitude parcels. In 2016 for instance, grapes were harvested in a perfect sanitary state. Both technological and polyphenolic ripeness were close to perfect.
Some grapes (Grenache & Syrah) are co-fermented for more complexity. A small batch of extremely old Syrah has been aged in barrel.
The rest of the blend was aged in concrete to preserve the fruit purity.

2,000 (9-liter cases)
