This wine is perfectly representative of the domain's deliciously fresh style. Produced from vines planted in very poor soils and cultivated organically. Vinifications are meticulous, with ambient yeasts and the wines are matured in stainless steel vats. The name of this cuvée is actually Alain Chabanon's mother's maiden name, who didn't have a male heritor for the name. This blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache gives off a delicious roundness and silky substance, ending with a nice tension.
Alain studied agriculture in Bordeaux and Montpellier and then worked for two years for Alain Brumont, the iconic man behind the revival of Madiran. He bought vineyards in the late 80s and released his first wine in 1992. Now with 17 hectares on 5 villages, Alain aims to make exceptional wines of true personality. His wines age beautifully and are celebrated around the world.
