Aléofane translates as a “gem of truth” and is a reflection of Natacha’s expression of Syrah. Natacha’s vineyard work is meticulously done by hand, everything is organic, with sulphur use being kept to an absolute minimum and indigenous yeasts used. The wines are bottled with no fining or filtration. She prepares her own holistic treatments from spices, oils, and plants to combat any problems in the vineyard. This wine is from 50-year old vines grown on alluvial-clay and galets. 12 months maturation, this time exclusively in 600 Lt demi-muids. A great wine to drink now but will also develop and improve with a bit of ageing.
