Côtes du Roussillon Villages
A vibrant red colour veering towards garnet. The nose offers a powerful bouquet garni of spices, with blackberry, fig, cinnamon, and grilled aromas. In the mouth it is supple with well-integrated, plump tannins and superb aromatic expression taking in laurel, pepper, blackcurrant and yellow plum, typical of this most southerly terroir of our region. The Roussillon is fiercely Mediterranean, seared by the sun, and the wine produced in such a harsh environment is something of a small miracle. So this is our “petit miracle” in a vintage that holds a promise of great things to come.
