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.
