This Syrah is cultivated biodynamically, in a cool growing area, on a soil of highly decomposed granite soil known as "Gore" and loamy-clay. The parcel is situated in the "Sommet des Arlettes" vineyard site. The vines are 55 years old on average. The vinification is simply a continuity of his natural approach in the vines: indigenous yeasts, 100% destemming, daily punching down of the cap, fermentation for 14 days, and no “gory” chemicals. Maturation: 24 months, with 12 in 10-year-old, 500-litre barrels, and the rest in vats. Vacuum sealed at bottling, without filtering or fining, and 2 g/hl of sulphur.
