Fantastic Chateauneuf brimming with energy and big on character. At once silky and robust. Lovely red and black cherry and crème de mure fruit, together with more sapid notes of garrigues, herb and spice. Great substance, quality of fruit and with a raciness too. Bold and beautiful. A whole-bunch-fermented blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Cinsault from fifty year old vines from which Isabel Ferrando makes less than 2000 cases a year. The vines are in the estate’s original and historic Quartier des Serres sector. Half of the wine is aged in concrete tank and half in large used oak hogsheads, for 18 months.
