Tasting Note:

Maturation will take its usual path for this wine, 10 months in concrete and 10 months wooden foudres. Lovely bright fruit, this is very "Télégraphe" in style with the emphasis being on balance and finesse, boasting fresh and very pretty, long ripe red and black fruit flavours with shades of morello cherry. Beautifully defined fruit tannins provide a certain grip and stuffing. Harvested at 14.5 degrees this nonethless provides a real Chateauneuf breath of fresh air experience. The final blend comprises 65% Grenache 15% Syrah 15% Mourvedre, the rest Cinsault.
