Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Nice cherry color. Very expressive nose with aromas of mocha, black cherry, tobacco associated to a toasted note and balsamico. In the mouth it is very open, unctuous and mineral, with lots of plum and red fruit flavors. It is a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is aged for 16 months in 35% new Allier barrels and the rest in one and two year old Allier barrels.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright red. Intense red berry aromas are complemented by minerals, baking spices and fresh rose. Supple raspberry and cherry flavors are firmed by dusty tannins and given grip by tangy minerals. Sappy and sweet on the persistent finish, which leaves subtle oak spices behind. This is drinking very nicely right now. Michel Tardieu, of Rhone Valley renown, is behind this project; this is the inaugural vintage."
