The vines, regrouped in 2 plots located to the east and west of the Rhône, gather all the complexity of the Rhône terroirs.

Terroir 

This wine comes from two terroirs with complementary qualities allowing the Grenache to reveal all its potential: elegance and finesse thanks to the small yields and clay-limestone subsoil of the Saint Geniès de Comolas terroir in the Gard and power and hardiness thanks to the round pebbles and clay subsoil of the Travaillan in the Vaucluse. 

Tasting Note

The Grenache expresses all its qualities through the wine: exuberance of red fruit, roundness of tannins. The Syrah and the Cinsault bring their structure and elegance. The 2015 vintage, with exceptional climatic conditions, allowed the grenache to fully express itself. This cuvee Est Ouest is then the perfect wine for an aperitive between friends or to destress after a hard day of work.
