La Cantilène



Area : 35 Ha

The hillside of La Livinière
Pebbled top soil, with a high percentage of clay and limestone, rich in manganese. Exceptional “terroir” due to the nature of its soils and its exposure (terraced vineyard at 250m in altitude, facing south and sheltered from northwinds).
55% syrah, 20% grenache, 25% carignan
mechanical harvest, long maceration of 15 days, maturing in new oak barrels (25%) and 1 to 3 wines for 12 months.
A beautiful intense and deep color. A delicate woody, with ripe fruits and toasted nose. A fat attack that evolves a fine and powerful tannins, full. Lingering final. A full, rich and fleshy wine.
Game, grilled red meat with sauce, cheeses.
