The soil is clay and calcareous. The vinification is in stainless steel vats with the submergent cap method and maceration on the skins for about 13 days.

This wine has an intense garnet color. It is a complex, dry and ethereal wine. The nose has fragrant notes of roses and violets together with sweet spices and a touch of cocoa. In the mouth, it is harmonious and soft yet gifted with firm and noble tannins and a good long finish.
