The colour, as always, is intense red veering towards violet and black. The wine opens with aromas of luscious black fruit, crushed strawberry, laurel leaf, wild fennel, and black pepper. It is beautifully fresh and youthful, full and smooth, with chiselled tannins, bursting with blackcurrant, blackberry, redcurrant, fennel, mint, and dill, before finishing on liquorice and spicy notes. When crafted with meticulous care, this hybrid grape (a cross between Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon) can give stunning results thanks to its knife-edge balance and its originality. Perfect for drinking all year round.
