– Le Muscat à petits grains noir ou blanc, it requires heat and a lot of sunlight. It grows on «terre blonde» soil composed of sandy marl to the south and clay-limestone soils to the north.
– Le Grenache noir, the basic variety of all southern Rhône Valley wine appellations. It is resistant to dryness and wind. It is rich in phenolic compounds and brings hints of summer fruits, liquorice, and spices.
– La Syrah, this variety gives body and structure to the wine and provides a great aromatic complexity (red berries, pepper mint, liquorice, coffee…).
– Le Mourvèdre, this grape-variety is very demanding concerning heat and exposure to light. It produces powerful and full-bodied wines, strong in tannins that permit good evolution and ageing potential.
– There are also secondary varieties such as Cinsault, Carignan, and Counoise, as well as white grape varieties, which are authorized to make up no more than 10% of the wine. These varietals can give an original touch that could be considered as the winemaker’s signature.
