A premium Moulin-à-Vent named after Franck Bessone's daughters, this wine always makes an impression.
The wine is made with grapes which come from old vines from the very best Moulin-à-Vent parcels in the Domaine du Granit estate.

The grapes are picked by hand at optimum ripeness levels and destalked prior to the individual berries being put in a tank. The temperature is lowered to 10°C, then slowly allowed to rise over the next 4-5 days and fermentation starts spontaneously using yeasts occurring naturally on the grape skins.
To give the wine structure, the ancient method of pigeage, or "punching down", is applied twice daily to maximise tannin extraction. There follows a long and slow fermentation over three weeks and then the wine is aged in oak barrels for about 18 months. During ageing the wine is racked once.
