Gleaming ruby red. The first nose offers red fruit… cherry, redcurrant, followed by spices and floral aromas. The wine is as delicious as ever in this vintage, with super smooth, supple tannins and good tension. Notes of red fruit predominate, but share the stage with spices such as pepper and thyme, with always the unfailing presence of the garrigue. A harmonious blend, as always, for this impeccable wine of profoundly Mediterranean style.

In view of the great variety of terroirs in the Languedoc Roussillon, we seek out the best expressions of our indigenous grape varieties where they exist naturally. Our Grenache comes from the splendid granitic and schist soils in the north west of the Roussillon. The Syrah grapes express themselves best on the slopes of the Black Mountains, and finally, our superbly fresh Carignan grow on a terroir of red clay.
