Overview

Les Crestes is a 3 hectare vineyard planted with young-vine Garnatxa averaging 20 years old with makes up the bulk of the cuvĂ©e named for this site. About 10% each Syrah (from Mas de l’Osso) and 80 year old vine Carinyena (from Els Ullastres) are added to compliment the Garnatxa from Les Crestes. Despite its reasonable price, the same care is taken in the winemaking: a first selection in the vineyard, a second at the cellar door and a third after destemming followed aging in neutral French oak barrels.
