The wine's name evokes an incredible love story, a tumultuous, mysterious, and poetic romance between two grape varieties: Grenache and Syrah. This cuve is only made in exceptional years; the outstanding quality of the Syrah this vintage inspired Julien to produce Fiance this year after a five year absence. The blend is 50% Grenache from the 100 year old Terres Blanches plot, which lends finesse and silkiness to the wine, and 50% Syrah from the Cabričres plot, which contributes fruit, power, colour, and cocoa aromas. Rigorous bud pruning is done to keep yields low, as well as green harvesting and leaf thinning. The picking is entirely by hand, with sorting in the vineyard and again in the cellar. Underripe stalks are removed, and the juice stayes on the skins for over a month; the Grenache is aged in tank, while the Syrah is aged on its lees in 600L barrels that are at least three years old. The final cuvee is aged 18 months before it is bottled, unfiltered.
