A single vineyard field blend of numerous grape varieties (10 in all), grafted onto existing rootstock in 2012. The varieties include Cinsault, Aramon Noir, Aramon Gris, Oeillade Noire, Muscaté, Clairette(s) Blanche, Grise and Musquée and at least one other (completely unknown) variety. Some might cry foul at the first hint of apple and citrus aromas and flavours in what is essentially a red wine, but remember that it is actually a blend of red, gris and white grapes, so such aromatic quirkiness and complexity is to be expected. And the sheer weight of luscious, ripe, vivacious red and black berry and cherry fruits will surely win anyone over. It smells like summer in a basket, and tastes like it too, with a sprinkling of herbs and spices, fine, ripe tannins and simply bucket-loads of tangy, orange and cherry-tinged acidity. This really is an almost impossibly delicious young wine, which is *perfect* to drink now, though there's no great rush.
