Producer Note: Located on the Beausset Vieux hillside, at an altitude of 300 meters, La Migoua consists of scattered parcels circled by wild scrubland. An extraordinary geological accident formed very complex soil. A sheet of rock was added to a geological reversal with older underground rock layers of limestone, dolomite and dedo-lomite. The rugged relief provides different exposure to the sun (east, west and south), generally less affected by the Mistral, a strong north-westerly wind. The select La Migoua cuvée expresses all the specificity of this 11-hectare site.
Mourvèdre (55%), completed with Cinsault (~ 25%) and Grenache (~ 15%) and Syrah.
Average age of the vines: 40 years. Clusters are hand-selected in the vineyard and in the cellar; de-stemmed, crushed and put into concrete vats for 3 to 4 week to ferment thanks to indigenous yeasts. Aged in large oak casks for 18 months minimum before bottling.
