Terroir
Located in the upper basin of the Arc, the terroir is composed of scree and clay-sandstone from the Late Cretaceous period, with colluvial deposits from the surrounding hills. The etymology of the name "Maupague" (meaning "giving little"), and the geological characteristics of the soil make this property particularly well-suited to the growing of grapes; there have been vines here for many generations.

 

Vineyard
Average age of vines: 20 years Grenache 55% Cinsault 40% Syrah 5% Yield: 45 hl/ha. Minimum use of pesticide approach (Agriculture raisonnée)

 

Vinification
Skin maceration of the destemmed grapes during filling of the water-cooled pneumatic press. Draining of the juices, and then light pressing at constant temperature.

 

Tasting notes
Very pale and luminous peach pink. Nose of plums and honeydew. Voluptuous yet fresh with a persistent nectarine finale.

 

Matching food & wine
Grilled prawns with fennel, tapenade.
