Winemaker's Notes

A custom Cuvee for Bourgeois Family; a blend of Grenache (50%), Syrah (25%), Carignan (20%), and Cinsault (5%) with 15% of the cuvee aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. With a profile of a baby Chateauneauf-du-Pape it can be served throughout the meal.

Critical Acclaim

"This sensational blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 20% Carignan and 5% Cinsault displays knockout aromas of black cherry and cassis alongside asphalt and black olive. It's an intense and compelling mix of fruity and savory, with a long, mouthwatering finish.
