Style / Colour

A lively, fruit-forward red from the Southern Rhône


Alex Favier sources the grapes for his IGPs from land the family owns in the Vaucluse; grapes for this come from 2 lieu-dits in Travaillan to the west of Gigondas – La Marteillère with clay soil for the Grenache & L’Hers on limestone for the Carignan, vines are 30 years old. Hand-harvested and de-stemmed, short maceration in concrete for the Grenache plus ageing in 5 year old Burgundy barrels for the Carignan to round out the tannins.

Tasting Note

Fresh ripe red fruits on the nose, flavours are more dark cherry with a touch of spice. The Carignan adds soul to the vibrant Grenache, nicely balanced acidity with smooth tannins.

Food Match

Great on its own or with pasta, grilled lamb and ratatouille.
