The duality of schist and limestone soils to be found in Saint Chinian is very rare.
This wine is deep red with ruby gleams, with a spicy nose of dill and white pepper followed by delicately interlaced notes of cherry, laurel and peat. The mouth opens with red fruit, garrigue and olive tapenade and is well-structured, with smooth, supple tannins. A fine minerality gradually evolves to more Mediterranean notes. A great terroir wine of great charm that will continue to give pleasure over many years.
2019 brings with it a new label and a “Bric a Brac” of terroirs whose coherence is amazing.
