In the Shadow of the Morning Sun


Grenache Noir from a forty years old parcel planted over marnes bleues in Valgrand. A quarter of the grapes were de-stemmed and added to the direct press juice for three weeks of maceration, before being pressed off to rest in vats for nine months of élevage. This is light, delicate and herbaceous, with a very pleasant bitterness to the finish.
