Côtes du Roussillon Villages
Ruby red hue. Intense aromas of red berries, laurel and anise on the nose, along with some subtle aromas of humus. Straightforward on entry, clean tannins with good concentration. Full on the palate, with notes of anise, dill and spices. The finish is fresh, silky, and even a touch minty. A very nice vintage.
