Bergerie du Capucin ‘Larmanela’ Syrah Grenache 2016


Tender and sweet meeting with sweet berries and aromatic notes of our garrigue, Larmanela exalts the fresh and delicate aromas from the Pic Saint Loup’s terroir. Drawing its suppleness and finesse in the depth of soil of the appellation, thanks to thirty year old rooting, Lamarnela is a blend with a large part of Syrah, aged several months in 400-liter barrels. This wine will accompany wonderfully pretty red meat, savoured it as you would a moment of sharing, in any season.


At 638 metres and 30 kilometres from the Mediterranean with the Massif Central bearing down,
this 15 hectare vineyard in the Pic St Loup appellation in the Languedoc is very special. In addition to the location, the vegetation surrounding the vineyard adds its own character to the wines. Perfumes and essences of holm oaks, Garrigue scrubland, pines, thyme, laurel and rosemary fill the air from early spring and through summer.
Since 2008 when Guilhem Viau took the decision to make his own wines, he has not looked back.
Managing the property in sympathy with the land and with respect to the soils and native flora and fauna, Guilhem’s wines reflect those sympathies.
