The cuvée "Confidence", AOC red Ventoux aged in oak barrel, comes from the best Grenache and Syrah vineyards of the cellar. We selected old and well-trellised vines with a small grapes proportion to obtain grapes with an excellent ripeness level and a good concentration necessary to a long ageing in oak barrel.
