Beautifully deep purple in colour. The nose is intense, luscious and powerful with red fruit such as cherry and redcurrant prevailing, followed by spicy notes that characterise the superb finish. In the mouth it is deliciously supple, well-balanced and incredibly persistent, with fine tannins. The unmistakably distinctive notes of the garrigue underpin its elegant fruitiness. A vintage and a blend that perfectly incarnates our vision of red Languedoc: Mediterranean in style, juicy, fruity and luminous… a wine of pure pleasure.
Syrah 40% - Grenache 40% - Mourvèdre 20%
50 HL / Ha
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 Mouvèdre grow on a terroir of red clay.
