A magnificent vintage with stunning Syrah. A glimmering ruby red wine with aromas of red fruit in variations around cherry, but also spices and herbs of the garrigue that surrounds the vines. The palate is smooth, perfectly balanced and very moreish, with again notes of red fruit but here with a touch of acidity reminiscent of redcurrant, spices such as cinnamon, and a hint of peppermint on the finish. A delightful Minervois with all the elegance of the appellation, but also a very definite character that will leave no-one indifferent.
