Drinking Window: 2020 - 2023
Deep pink. Some genuine intensity of aroma here: cherry, redcurrant and strawberry. Full-bodied, rounded and generous with plenty of weight on the mid-palate and a little fresh, sapid touch to the finish. Plenty of fruit into the length. Old vine Grenache (60%), Clairette (15%), Cinsault (10%), Syrah (10%), Bourboulenc (5%) grown organically on the galets roulés of the Plateau de Vallongue. All hand-harvested, 48 hours maceration then fermented in stainless steel.
