About This Wine

Origin: 1.5 ha of south-facing terraced vines on Coteau de Semons, in Tupin-Semons commune. “Bassenon” is not the district but the stream at the foot of the hill.

Soil : granite and gneiss, typical of the south of this AOC area.

Grape Variety : 90% syrah, 10% viognier.

Viticulture : high-density planting (8,000-10,000 vines per hectare). No insecticides few treatments (depending on weather), small amount of organic-only fertiliser, with respect of soil and vine balance. Vigour and yield control, leaf-thinning and green harvesting to promote grape maturation.

Vinification: the grapes are picked by hand; and then sorted, crushed and partially destemmed in the cellar. Open, temperature-controlled vatting for about 3 weeks, with regular cap-punching and pumping-over. Malolactic-fermented in barriques with native yeasts.

Maturing: 18 months in barriques.

Style: an elegant bouquet that mixes Syrah’s red berry fruits with Viognier’s floral character (violets). Elegant, fresh and airy on the palate. Subtle yet prominent tannins.

Ageing: drink for the primary aromas during the first 5 years, or for the secondary aromas up to 10 years and more.

Pairing: meat with a delicate yet characterful texture (e.g. roast quail with spice bread and prunes).
