Our 2018 Saint-Chinian is an organic, terroir driven blend, with 80% coming from vines growing on slate soils and 20% from vines planted on limestone clay slopes. It is an impressive purple red colour, with a nose that is delicately fruity with touches of spice. Aromas of cherry, blackberry and laurel intermingle harmoniously. In the mouth the attack is direct and the tannins supple, and we find the same luscious fruit that gives this wine its deliciously appealing character. Organic growing methods offer us very pure, open aromas….
