Additional Information: Domaine Les Pallieres only produces two red wines, the ‘Racine’ and the ‘Terrasse du Diable'. The property is located at the extreme north of the appellation, with primarily a northern exposure, all vineyards are organically farmed with selective hand harvesting and first sort in the field. 

This selection comes entirely from parcels in Les Pallières, at an average altitude of about 250 metres. The Domaine consists of a single 334-acre estate comprising 62 acres under vine.

Grapes from about 60% of the plantings are blended in “Racines”, 80% Grenache Noir, 15% Syrah and Cinsault (complanted), 5% Clairette with vines 70 years on average. 

Grapes are hand-picked, with double sorting at the vine, then a third sort in the winery. Gentle crushing and selective destemming, followed by 25-30 days’ traditional fermentation in temperature controlled concrete and wooden vats. Pneumatic pressing then 20 months in French oak foudres. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, then released two years after harvest.
