Vineyard Notes: Fruit is harvested by hand in mid-September from 8 hectares of vines spread throughout Jonquières and Saint Felix. The average vine age is 35 years, trained in Gobelet (except Grenache, which is trained in Cor- don de Royat) and planted at 5,000-6,000 vines/ha.
Winemaking Notes: After partial destemming, wine ferments spontaneously in concrete and stainless steel tanks. Cuvaison lasts 20-35 days. Each variety ages separately for 12 months in demi-muids (15% new) and neutral foudres followed by 4 months in stainless-steel tanks. Wine remains on its fine lees until assemblage prior to bottling.
Tasting Notes: Previously known as L'infidèle, this wine is the historic cuvée of Jean-Pierre Jullien. It is a blend of all the regional grapes – Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan. The Goumards make choices in the vineyard and in the cellar that will emphasize finesse and freshness in this bottling, allowing for full expression of the fruit.
