Francois and Sylvia Cornut are in charge here as proprietors. Located in the Costieres de Nimes appellation, Francois and Sylvia grow both beautiful grapes, and incredible fruit (apricots & cherries), in the area where the Provence, Rhône and Languedoc regions all meet around the mouth of the Rhône River. All work is done by hand with great care and skill, and their wines reflect the authentic Provencal setting.
The Syrah for this bottling is specially selected from the best parcels of the vineyards, and the Cabernet is picked really late – sûr maturité, to ensure good structure and wonderful texture. A blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Syrah, this wine is aged for up to one year in barrel, and then bottled unfiltered.
