Domaine de Cebene 2012
Ex Arena is Latin for “From the Sand,” an homage to the terroir from which this wine originates. Located in Corneilhan about 20km from the Mediterranean and at an elevation of 40m above sea level, Ex Arena is a blend of primarily Grenache, with a small addition of Mourvedre. The average age of these vines is 35 years old. The freely draining sandy soil is deep and rocky and was once an ancient beach eons ago – a terroir that results in extremely low yields from 10–20hl/ha.
