Cyril’s ‘young’ vines are 30 years old, planted in thin soils developed over upturned schist in a lieu-dit called Mont-Redon after the famous CNDP estate. Vinified in 500ltr wooden cuvee for three months, and then aged in stainless steel for eight months, to capture the fruit and freshness, Cyril’s approach is one of extreme delicacy, producing a floral, finely tuned 100% Grenache with a notable schisty, mineral print and very fine grained tannins, "An infusion of grapes, allowing an expression of the delicacy of the variety," says Cyril. Ripe, complex aromas of blackberry, black-cherry, citrus, violet, plum skin and earth. Intense fruit on the fresh, medium-bodied palate, with blackberry and tart black-cherry, liquorice, meat and earth, silky texture with lively acidity and fabulous length. This teases and tantalises the senses in the same way the wines of L'Anglore do.
