Single vineyard cuvée. The grapes come from the “Brusquières” plot, a plateau located north of the Appellation. On this terroir protected by the presence of the famous rolled pebbles, this cuvée is made up predominately of Grenache and Syrah. This last grape variety, associated with our traditional know-how, makes this cuvée atypical by the aromatic intensity of black fruits, spices and chocolate notes. The mouth is distinguished by the concentrated aromas of black fruits, spices, and leather.
