Syrah (in this case blended with Grenache and Carignan) grown on schistous (crumbly slate) soil, in vineyards situated 200-plus metres above sea level, makes Saint-Chinian one of the most distinctive and refreshing styles of red Languedoc wine. And this particular cuvée - which we have been importing for more than 15 years - always delivers. Heady aromas of bramble, black cherry, pepper/spice, freshly-baked bread, leather, and the merest whiff of black olive tapenade greet the nose. All of which carry through onto the palate, offering masses of sweet-sour black and red fruit flavours, with subtle savoury-umami notes, wrapped around a core of grippy, gently rustic tannins and really mouth-watering orange and cherry skin acidity. It really is cracking stuff - and a properly iconic Languedoc red!
