The Viala comes from a small parcel of land situated amongst the exceptional terroirs of the La Livinière appellation, known for its strong and powerful wines. The vineyard terrain is made up of a mosaic of stripped marlstone associated with chalky limestone. This compact limestone dates back to the Eocene period, formed millions of years ago. This type of soil naturally limits the growth of each grape, but due to a long settling period, there is a resistance to aquatic stress. The strong summer sun assists the slow maturation of the grapes. The manual harvest followed very precise monitoring of the maturation of the grapes. After a meticulous sorting process, the Carignan and Syrah grapes were put in their entirety into vats and vinified separately by carbonic maceration. The Grenache was destemmed and vinified with traditional maceration under controlled temperatures. Following the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations, the different varieties were blended and the wine was aged in new 225 litre oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months. The wine was not fined or filtered prior to being bottle aged for 12 months.

Tasting Note

Powerful nose of blackberries and violets. On the palate, smooth tannins and subtle woody notes, beautifully balanced and an never ending finish. An extreme delicacy with a huge lasting potential.
