Biodynamic. Crafted from 50% Mourvèdre, 40% Grenache and 10% Syrah, the Haut Coustias was always the Alary brothers’ tour de force—the most distinctive wine of the domaine (even if we often rate Les Douyes just as highly). The wine is made from the fruit of 65-year-old vines planted in the rocky, complex soils (limestone-rich with blue clay, 40% active limestone and some alluvial stones as well) of the estate's highest plots. Only 8,000 bottles are produced each year.
The grapes were sorted three times (in the vineyard, then pre- and post-destemming) and the wine was naturally fermented in concrete before spending 10 months in large, 22-hectolitre wooden foudres.
