The vineyards for this tinto Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot are located at 550-600 meters above sea level, protected by the Pyrenees. The humidity is low, partly due to the drying effect of gentle winds. The soil consists of a mixture of sand and loam, poor and permeable to water. Due to the altitude, the difference in temperature between day and night is very large, 35 ° C during the day, 17-18 ° C at night. This gives the grapes extra complexity, aromatic power and taste.
