Varieties

The beautiful blue-black Syrah grapes produce powerful wines that are excellent for ageing. This highly adaptable wine is one of the 6 most used grape varieties in the world. Generally used to produce intensely coloured red wines with mainly floral (violet) aromas and spices, this variety is also used to produce fruity rosés.

Soils

Plots with the best balance between soil, plant and microclimate are selected: North-facing hills for this wine. Control of yields via optimal management of nutrition and de-budding. The Versant Syrah vines are situated on south-facing hills near Maraussan (Languedoc-Roussillon), where the soil is made up of chalky ‘terres blanches’ ideal for growing Syrah.
