Harvested at the optimum of maturity. Total disteming. Traditional vinifications with long macerations. Extraction by « rack and return » technic and « punch down » only. Long macerations from 30 to 40 days. Oak ageing in selected French oak barrels for 100% of the selection.
The plot selection of this Syrah gives an extraordinary richness and aromatic purity. One plunges into a bold wine that delivers aromas of ripe fruit accompanied by delicate empyreumatic scrolls that give the Syrah fine notes of leather. The mouth is long, graceful and ends on a beautiful natural freshness revealing a tip of licorice which highlight the whole.

"This cuvée is a tribute to all the people who made VIRANEL what it is today because since 1551 it has always been transmitted by inheritance or alliance."
