Overview

Les Olivets represents a classically provençale style of Châteauneuf, redolent with dried herbs and bright red fruit while Prestige is dense, structured, and darkly fruited. Between these two styles is Didier’s Reserve, a blend of Grenache with Syrah, Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Cinsault from vines between 60 and 75 years old. It is sourced from the lieux dits of Montolivet (red clay and galets) and Les Bosquets (sand) which combines the power and structure of the former with a freshness and aromatic complexity of the later.
