Fruit, roses and violets fragance.


Charismatic and refreshing as it is dark and intriguing, combining bright strawberry and blackberry fruit, roses and violets with all its blackness and gritty, graphite power. A spicy core with wild herbs and dusty chalk-powder minerality complete the picture of a class act. While focussed and linear, its firmly structured frame is wrapped in a silky coating, bringing lushness to the long, racy finish.

Growing Conditions

The sandy-loam soils consist of several layers: 3% of clay, 78% of sand and 19% of silt. The first layer -with 25% of stones- goes to a depth of 50 cm (20”) below the surface. The second layer ranges from a depth of 50 cm to 150 cm (20” and 60”), showing 50% of flattened stones, with angular edges, of a limestone type (known as flint or “pedernal”). The soils have very low water retention capacity.
