Tasting Note:

A blend of 20 percent Merlot, Syrah, Carignan and Grenache and a blend of vintages, this particular incarnation being from 2011, 2012, 2013 – look at the clock on the neck label and you will see which vintages have gone into that bottling. As an untraditional blend and a mix of vintages this is a vin de table, and hence incredible value. For these are all Pegau grapes, grown in the same way as all of the others and made in their uncompromisingly traditional style. All whole bunch, and ageing predominantly in large old oak foudres with a small proportion in steel – no new oak. Bursting with character, open boisterous flavours of dark cherries, spices and herbs, gripping and hearty with great freshness to balance the full-flavoured fruit. A wine of incredible personality for the price.
