Winemaker's Notes

With a flaming red, already developed at edges, this wine has a complex bouquet of ripe fruits and spicy taste. On the palate also, its full aromas are revealed with a pleasant persistence and delicate softness. It can kept up to 10 years or more. Grenache grapes bring roundness and suppleness. Syrah grapes give colour and aroma. Cinsault grapes give aroma and balance. Mouvèdre grapes bring body and complexity.

Critical Acclaim

"Very juicy, with compact layers of fig, blackberry and raspberry fruit. A graphite spine and toasted spice notes drive the finish. Shows good guts for the vintage."
