Easily one of the most complete, balanced and expressive wines of the southern Rhone. A rich, saturated and juicy blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, from the rocky cliffs of the granite Dentelles de Montmirail. We're going to be stocking this one away for decades; it is a blockbuster today and will only get better. Richness, structure, freshness, silky tannins, a long finish—it has it all.
"(70% grenache and 30% syrah, planted at 300 meters altitude): Deep ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of raspberry preserves, Asian spices and cola, with slow-mounting spiciness.
