The monumental 2016 vintage marked the inaugural bottling of Le Plateau, sourced from a large vineyard site planted with a diverse range of varieties. This cuvée is mainly old-vine Mourvèdre with smaller percentages of Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache, Counoise, and Clairette. This northwest facing and slopped site is between 225 and 250 meters in elevation. Entirely encircled by woods and exposed to nearly constant winds results in low yields, a late harvest date, and concentrated fruit. It is an indigenous co-fermentation in a small concrete tank with 100% whole clusters. Production is small, at only 180 cases in an average year.
