Grown on clay and silicious soils, from terroirs around Châteauneuf du Pape, this wine offers intense, vibrant, fresh black cherry and bramble aromas, with hints of sous-bois and garrigue herbs adding a touch of complexity. The palate brims with luscious, vibrant summer fruit flavours, along with some savoury notes, gently grippy tannins, ample refreshing acidity and plenty of spicy warmth on the long finish. A wonderfully mellow wine, that really punches above its weight.
