This is our classic wine. The oldest of the Domain’s wines, it was created during the 1970s to highlight the long-standing family vineyard. Vines for this wine are located in the heart of the appellation, facing those we first replanted. Les Vieilles Vignes is a wine that reflects our history and our winemaking know-how.
Situated on slopes at an altitude of approximately 200 metres, facing South-South-East, the vines of our classic wine are on average 60 years old. Their roots delve deep down into old, worn granite rock, called gores locally.
100% Syrah fermented with natural yeasts and maceration for several weeks in stainless steel vats, with cap-punching and pumping-over done twice a day. Maturation in 228-litre barrels for 20 months, with 15% new barrels.
