and Carignan from very
strict selection from the best parcels of the vineyard
and produced in limited quantity. Forty percent is
aged in oak barrels for 12 - 16 months. The Château
is a wine of density and exceptional finesse which
fully expresses the richness of the late-ripening and
cool terroir, perfect for producing elegant wines.
the Languedoc, 2006 will be remembered as a generous
vintage. The wine has a beautiful, inky red color, almost
opaque. Although closed due to its youth, the nose
elegant, well-integrated oak. Very big on the palate,
with great richness. Dense, firm but elegant tannins.

long. The wine will certainly gain in finesse during
the first months after bottling, while still keeping
its wonderful aromatic freshness.
