The contrasted region of the Languedoc Roussillon produces fruity wines which represent the exceptional diversity of terroirs. The grapes for the 6ème Sens Rouge are grown in the foothills of the Corbières and Minervois. Here, the sunny climate and proximity to the Mediterranean, offer the ideal landscape for vine growing. The typical Southern French varieties are grown soils that are predominantly clay limestone.

The grapes were vinified separately. A proportion of the Syrah underwent carbonic maceration which preserved the integrity of the aromas and ensured a fruity style. The remainder of the grapes were destemmed, followed by traditional maceration and fermentation in stainless steel tanks under carefully controlled temperatures, up to a maximum of 25°C. Following fermentation, the wines were matured with a proportion being aged in French oak barrels and the remainder in vats to preserve the fruity aromas.
