Tasting Note:

Sumptuous and velvety, ripe but with perhaps a touch more restraint than the 2007.

A Grenache dominated blend with some Syrah, Mourvèdre and Counoise, with a smattering of the other permitted varieties. All from vines aged between 25 and 80 years old. Fermented the traditional way, lightly pressed whole bunch in concrete vats followed by a minimum 18 months in large old wooden cask, bottled without filtration.
