From the highest vineyards in Faugères (320m) and grown on schist soil, with yields of just 20 hl/ha. Dark purple/red in colour, almost opaque, with a tiny rim. A considerably complex nose - almost sweet-smelling, with bramble, cassis and redcurrant aromas, with notes of roasted red meat, burning incense, curry spices and damp earth. The palate is equally rich and expansive, with bags of bramble and black cherry flavours and myriad savoury, herby, smoky and exotic spice notes, all held together by beautifully ripe tannins and ample acidity. Altogether, a rich, generous wine, but with genuine elegance - a sort of cool(er) climate Chateauneuf, which can be drunk young, or laid down for a few more years. Organic.
