Winemaker's Notes

In the glass, this wine is a very dark red. Aromas of red fruits, leather, truffles and musk follow through to spices, pepper, and anise on the palate. From one of the most well known and respected producers in Southern France.

The vineyard is planted in all the traditional grapes of Châteauneuf-du-Pape: Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cinsault, Vaccarese, Counoise, Terret Noir, Muscardin, Clairette, Picpoul, Picardin, Bourboulenc, and Roussanne. For their red wines, Mourvèdre has the largest percentage (over 30%), followed by Grenache (30%), Counoise, Syrah, and Cinsault. All thirteen varieties may be used in the final blend.
