Côtes du Roussillon Villages
Bright, clear ruby red hue. Immediately intense on the nose, with aromas of red fruits and bay leaves which give way to subtle notes of undergrowth and humus after aeration. The wine reveals bold tannins and great finesse on entry to the palate, with notes of aniseed and dill that give way to a fresh and slightly menthol finish. An elegant, silky and persistent wine.
