Vinification: The winemaking process is rooted in tradition. Grapes are meticulously destemmed and sorted. For the Carignan, the grapes are vinified without crushing or pressing. In the case of Syrah, 50% of the grapes are gently crushed, and the vinification proceeds without pumping over, maintaining the cap's natural moisture. The Grenache undergoes vinification at 30 °C for one month. Malolactic fermentation takes place with the grape marc.

Ageing: The wine is thoughtfully aged for 6 months in tanks, ensuring its optimal development.
