Description

"The wine is gorgeously fruited and inviting on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blueberry compote, toasted nut and mixed spice characters with a lovely floral lift. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and rounded mouthfeel, well complemented by silky texture and polished tannins. A lovely modern style" Wine Orbit

Garnet red colour in the glass. Showcasing red fruit aromas (mainly morello cherry and strawberry). This wine is well-structured with firm tannins. Aromas are complex of spices and fruits. 

A delicious blend of Grenache and Syrah. The vineyards of this Côtes-du-Rhône come from different soils (from 4 neighbouring regions: Drôme, Vaucluse, Gard and Ardèche) such as clay-calcareous alluvial deposit terraces and clay… Providing this wine an incredible richness and complexity.

The grapes are hand-harvested at maturity. The whole grapes are destemmed. A two-week vat time provides a great tannic structure compulsory to its ageing and a good stability. The wine is aged in vats and the blending is performed by the end of spring.

such an easy drinking wine, on its own or with food. Soft yet plenty of body, and all those classic understated french flavours. I'll buy this again.
