Tasting Note:

Sumptuous, velvety, bramble fruit. Deep and mineral overlayed with some black cherry character. Dark, rich and voluptuous style with a nice, smooth brooding Mourvèdre component adding complexity and backbone. A whole-bunch-fermented blend of 75% Grenache, 12% Cinsault, 11% Mourvèdre and 2% Syrah, emanating from the Saint Prefert lieu-dit in the Quartier des Serres – the terroir here is a mix of galet stones, gravels, blue clay and sands. The blend comprises the grapes formerly used for the Auguste Favier, Charles Giraud and Cuvée Classique blends. Ageing is in a mixture of foudres, cement and amphora. Bottling will be in March 2022.
