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 northwesterly 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 or 4 weeks to ferment thanks to indigenous yeasts.
In large oak casks for 18 months minimum before bottling.
Conservation : from 5 to 20 years, with a longer aging potential according to one’s tastes.
