Tasting Note:

Floral fine aromas of dark cherries. Suave but with crunch and freshness to the palate. Lovely morello and red cherry notes infused with gentle peppery spices. Very fine, pure and precise. Gentle and charming, but not lacking for substance. The intricate flavours float across the palate, guided by a fine seam of freshness, and culminate in a long, persistent but effortless finish. Spellbinding. A blend of approximately 55% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, no more than 10% Syrah and 10% of the other permitted varieties. A blend of 14 organically-farmed parcels from across the commune, de-stalked, fermented in tank and then aged in large wooden vat for 12 months
