A blend of 80% Grenache Gris, 10% Grenache Noir and 10% Carigna, from century-old vines grown organically and planted on a parcel grown on black shale, facing south, and horse ploughed. Manual harvest and very low yields, this is some sort of heroic viticulture! Vinification in whole bunches, one month of carbonic maceration, cap punching, matured 6 months in barrels that have seen 4 to 6 wines. A cuvée made with zero added sulphur. Bottled at the Estate, no fining, no filtration.
Laurence Manya-Krief is sincere, upright, and determined... Formerly a sales director in ready-to-wear fashion, at 35 years old she dropped her career for a life of vines. Today, our taste buds are thrilled that she did! She may be petite, but she cultivates some of the most difficult plots in France. Her steep slopes are completely incompatible with mechanised farming, so she depends instead...All wines
