A 100% Syrah cuvée made from young vines between 8 and 40 years old, farmed biodynamically and planted on siliceous sandstone soils, at an altitude of 350 metres on the slopes and plateau of Gramenon, in the commune of Montbrison sur Lez. The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand, with controlled yields: 35 hl/hectare.
