Brilliant, ruby red robe and an elegant, distinctive nose of red fruits (cherries). On the palate this wine is very well-balanced, with silky, mouth-filling tannins. Notes of red currant, ripe cherries and a touch of mocha are followed by fresh, elegant finish with floral and menthol hints. A lively wine which will age well.

Terroir

Red, iron-rich clay and limestone scree.

For this grape variety, it is undoubtedly the best terroir in Languedoc-Roussillon.
