The story goes...

For the 2017 vintage, we have chosen the Mourvèdre from the limestone terroir of La Livinière.
A rigorous selection takes place during the harvest. Vinification is with whole-bunch grapes, pressed by foot, and without sulphites.
This technique allows the grape variety to express its full aromatic potential and gentle extraction of tannins.

A balancing act!
