60% Grenache from schiste, 20% Grenache from other terroirs and 20% Syrah from volcanic basalt. A beautiful deep but limpid blood red colour, with a truly expressive and heady nose of mixed red and black fruits, brioche, polished leather, iodine, tobacco and spice. The sort of smell that transports me instantly to the Languedoc. Richly fruited and full bodied on the palate, with grippy but ripe tannins and plenty of acidity to match, it is undoubtedly still youthful. But it is such a joy to drink now that the gentle dryness of those tannins - like fine, dark, bitter chocolate - is more than offset by the sheer vibrancy and depth of the fruit, spice and downright earthiness on offer. It really is the essence of sweet and sour loveliness, with a long, dry, pepper and spice finish and a bitter orange and black cherry taste that lingers for an age.
