“Planted on the hills of the Maures mountains, the average age of these well-ventilated Tibouren vines is about 20 years, on free-draining, salty clay soilds located close to the sea. These factors, along with the sustainable viticultural practices, enable good vine health and fresh style. Made predominantly from the much-prized Tibouren variety, this flaship wine also contains 10% Grenache, and after fermentation and belnding, it spends 12-18 months in 100-year-old casks before being bottled.

Orange. Intense fruit – dried peach, apricot and orange – some nutty oak, red berries, creamy, long fresh mineral acidity, and a phenolic finish. More gastronomic style. Deep, yellowy hue. Spicy, oaky, dried-flower and apricot aromas with a little mineral-kerosene development. Lovely, mineral, richly textured palate but tight too with dried apricot, minerla and crystalilised orange peel flavours. Long, complex, melifluous, fresh. Mid-pale orange colour. Floral and herby, with the beginnings of cumin spice and scorched citrus peel aromas. Mouthfilling and deep. Rich fruit with jasmine and baked apple. Rounded and characteristic. Some touches of oak and lees. Very fresh, long finish. Classy.” - Decanter
