WINEMAKER  Fabrice Guiberteau

REGION  Bekaa Valley

GRAPE VARIETIES  45% Syrah, 25% Tempranillo, 15% Grenache, 15% Cinsault

TERROIR  Cinsault on clay-limestone cambisol, as the Syrah, Grenache and Tempranillo are on silty clay and clay-limestone with marly subsoil.

CULTURE & VINIFICATION  The wine is made by “bleeding” and direct pressing on a pneumatic press. After destemming, berries are softly crushed and placed in tanks where the juice is immediately bled away from the skin followed by the “debourbage”. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature. Ageing in steel tanks before bottling at the Château 6 months after vinification.
