From around 1/3 of a hectare of gnarly old Grenache vines, with yields typically between 15 and 18 hl/ha, only around 600 bottles of this wine are made in each vintage. A semi-translucent cherry red colour with a bricking rim. The nose is gently savoury - though more herby than meaty - with black cherry and bramble aromas and a complex array of background aromas, including leather, damp undergrowth, truffle and freshly-baked bread. The palate is beautifully soft, with very fine tannins, a mix of fresh and crystallised fruit flavours, a hint of spiced orange and just the right amount of refreshing acidity - sweet-sour, spicy, grippy, but soft all at the same time. Something I would liken to a Chateauneuf-du-Pape for Burgundy lovers, and a wine with a great future - though it is lovely to drink already. Biodynamic.
