The Wines

75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault (av age 40 yrs in 2009) from 7 hectare red clay, stony alluvial soils, destemmed, 3 week vinification, daily pumping overs, part vat emptying/refilling, vat raised 10 months, filtered, 14,800 b


quite pretty red, magenta, plum robe. Mulled, oily red berry aroma with a smoky top, a swirl of sweet garrigue herbs such as laurel, sweet raisin. Soaked fruits start, the fruit ripe. Modern wine, a bit spotless, suited to the CHR trade. It lengthens OK, though the end is a bit tarry. Not yet really out and about, but there is likeable juice at its heart, so it floats along. Time will help. From mid-2009. 15°. 2015-16 Nov 2008
