"Ruby-red. Emphatic red berry nose with gentle spice accents. Gives an almost liqueur-like raspberry impression on the palate, with a suave, silky texture and fully absorbed tannins. The spice notes repeat on the finish but this is all about sweet, supple red berry fruit. This will drink well young."
-International Wine Cellar 89-91
This is stunningly pure and complex Chateauneuf-du-Pape; extremely gorgeous Chateauneuf in its own right. The wine is produced 'naturally' with manual vineyard work, traditional aging in large foudres, and bottling without intrusive fining and filtration.
Blend: 85% Grenache, 9% Syrah, 6 % Mourvèdre
The average age of the vines is 40 years, with some vines dating back to the early 1900s. All the grapes are hand harvested during multiple passes through the vines.
