The Indigène Syrah is deep dark cherry red. For the nose, there are wonderful, complex flavours. Flowers, violets, spices, chocolate. The palate is full, rich, delicately balanced and structured. Spices dominate the rich finish.

For the Indigène we use just one out of our 5 hectares of Syrah. Old vines, planted in 1981 and 1983. The yields are small but the wine made of these grapes is our favorite red. Concentrated, intense and spicy, a wine that simply embodies our "terroir": the heat of the summer days, the freshness of the nights, the Mistral and the herbes of Provence. After a manual harvest, and a spontaneous fermentation (20% full bunches) in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks, we age the Indigène for 15 months in barriques (a mix of new and 2 years old ones).

Brilliant with entrecote and steaks, with game, lamb, piglet and grilled chicken. Perfect for stronger flavoured and spicy dishes. Prunes, chocolate, onions, garlic, mushrooms, pepper, and olives, laurel, thyme or rosemary are the basic ingredients for perfect Syrah dishes. Also a good accompaniment for grilled salmon or strong-tasting vegetarian dishes, such as a pasta dish with spicy tomato sauce and mature grated cheese.

Syrah marries well with mature hard cheeses produced from cow or sheep’s milk. (Parmigiano Reggiano, Sbrinz, Pecorino or Manchego). Also appropriate for mature and fruity soft cheeses such as Camembert, Münster or Brie de Meaux.

Strong Syrah wines go perfectly with chocolate made of high-quality cocoa beans. Our favourite is a piece of dark chilli chocolate and a sip Syrah wine. The mix of bitter chocolate, chilli notes and typical Syrah aromas of black currants and spices will delight you.

A great wine to keep and drink for the next ten years.
