L’AS DU PIQUE 2015
A.O.C Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Roaix / Rouge
This cuvée is a blend of 3 varietals, Grenache (75%), syrah (20%), and mourvèdre (5%). The grenache vines are the oldest at the age of 40 but the other vines are only 10 to 15 years younger. All the vines grow on the slopes of the Ventabren massif in sunny south and southeast-facing plots situated in the zones known as “Les Camioles” (sandy soil) and “Les Banettes” (clay soil) and give yields of 25-30 hectolitres per hectare with six or seven grape clusters per vine.
L’ATOUT DU PIQUE 2017
A.O.C Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Roaix / Blanc
This cuvée is produced from a single plot of white grenache, which is very rare given the predominance of red wines in the vineyards around Roaix. The vines are 45 years old and yield 35 hectolitres per hectare. The winemaking period is split into two equal parts, one in large barrels and the other in stainless steel tanks. After a long fermentation of 3 months, the wine is matured on the lees without stirring.
This cuvée is a blend of two varietals, grenache (80%) and mourvèdre (20%), grown on typical Rasteau terroir, on a southeast-facing plot bathed in morning sunlight. The vines are planted in a clay-limestone soil untouched by artificial fertilizers or weed killers.
LE CHASSE-COEUR 2017
This cuvée combines grenache (80%), syrah (10%), and carignan (10%). The vines grow on the low alluvium terraces, made up of sand and silty clays deposited by the river Ouvèze, in the zone known as “Piquebas” surrounding the estate.
AU COEUR DU VENTABREN 2016
This cuvée is produced with grapes from plots of syrah planted in 1975 in the foothills of the Ventabren massif in a zone known as “Croix de Cornu”. The clay soil is made up of yellow and white marlstone which naturally gives a low yield of 30 hectolitres per hectare.
