Winemaker's Notes:

This 70% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre blend has a deep purple color which erupts in the mouth, giving you a strong bouquet of red fruit embellished with hint of spices. In the mouth you'll find a fullness of volume structured by elegant tannins.

About Arnoux et Fils:

Since 1717, the cultivation of the vine is perpetuated in our family. This tradition and this heritage has become a passion. Even today, we produce our wines in the greatest respect for ancestral traditions, to be able to offer and you return all the authentic flavors of our land. The homestead covers 40 hectares on the plateau Garrigues, a plateau to the west of the appellation, and extends to Chateauneuf du Pape. These soils are prone to low yields of highly concentrated grapes tannins and aromas.
