Winemaker's Notes

A deep ruby red color. An aromatic bouquet with scents of candied cherry, cocoa and mint. Full-bodied and well-knit, displaying red fruit flavors together with nuances chocolate and cedar. 35% Grenache, 35% Carignan, and 30% Syrah.

Outstanding served with grilled meats, hearty stews and aged cheeses.

"Vigne Lavail" is part of a collection of single-vineyard wines from the Roussillon, each carefully selected by the Ey (pronounced like the letter "A") family. The "Lavail" vineyard is located in the village of Maury in southern France's Roussillon district. Nicolas Battle, winemaker, belongs in the vanguard of a dynamic new generation of enologists. Battle's viticultural philosophy embraces "sustainable agriculture," which reduces the use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides to a minimal level. This environmentally friendly approach requires constant monitoring of the vineyard and care on a vine per vine basis.

I extremely enjoyed the Ey Cotes Roussillon Villages received in the club last year, I followed the recommendation and cooked a hearty mediterranean beef stew with rosemary and thyme!! Great match! Definitely a big wine that needed a strong food partner! I am surprised by the other reviews...you must have had bad bottles
